A gingerbread WONDERLAND

What could be more evocative of Christmas than the scent of spiced baking wafting from the kitchen? Mima Sinclair’s recipes for festive houses and decorations are versatile, beautiful and fun to make – not to mention very good to eat

My love affair with sweet things, inspired by my mum’s baking, has grown up with me. It’s moulded me, it’s comforted me, and that feeling of comfort has happily spread to others. That’s the joy of baking. With these recipes you can create perfect treats to serve up to friends at tea, give as gifts or use to create a festive centrepiece. MIMA SINCLAIR
