Sweeten up your Season with a Gingerbread MINI!
We’d all love to wake up to a gleaming new MINI for Christmas, but if that one seems to slip Santa’s mind every year, don’t worry. We’ve come up with an alternative that’s fun, cheap and lip-smackingly delicious, and all it takes is a little help from you! The Gingerbread MINI is the perfect way to bring a little festive MINI flair into your Christmas celebrations, and looks great as a scrumptious table centerpiece, or peeping out of a stocking. Or if you fancy a shortcut, use our cookie cutter templates to whip up some bite-sized MINI treats!
Send us your edible masterpieces at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to our Facebook wall, and we’ll be sure to get them up on display for all to see. And just to make the season even sweeter, a few lucky MINI bakers out there will bring home holiday prizes.
Got your rolling pin out? Apron on? Let’s go! Making your very own gingerbread MINI takes just a few simple steps. Download our instructions, and follow the recipe to bake your Gingerbread MINI parts according to the template. Once you’ve put them all together, it’s time to get creative. Customizing your MINI is much like real life — make it personal! Get those ideas flowing — we’re thinking gumdrops for lights, chocolate sprinkles for tinted windows, sugar glaze for the mirrors and candy cane exhaust pipes ... the possibilities are endless. And we want to see them all!
