How to Make a Gingerbread Eiffel Tower

To make my gingerbread Eiffel Tower, I used the following process:

Step 1 – You need to make the gingerbread dough. You can find a recipe for this online or in a cookbook.

Once you have made the dough, roll it out on a flat surface with a rolling pin. Then, use a knife to cut out the Eiffel tower template.

Step 2 – Next, you need to bake the gingerbread Eiffel tower. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the gingerbread Eiffel tower on the baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Step 3 – Once the Eiffel tower is baked, let it cool before decorating.

To decorate, you will need icing and candy. I used royal icing and sprinkled the Eiffel Tower with Candy Melts. You can get creative with the decoration and use whatever you like!

And if you’re spending Christmas in a camper van, these DIY gingerbread camper trailers are really fun to make.

If you’re in need of a little Christmas cheer, or just want to stare at something pretty while you eat your body weight in cookies, this gingerbread Eiffel Tower is sure to do the trick.

I’ll be sneaking in a thing or two for you on the blog next week, but we’ll just be taking a break to enjoy Christmas with our family for the next few days!

Wishing you all lots of love and happiness, and thank you for following along on S&C, you are a little blog family, too!
