Bored with those docile, smiling gingerbread men who show up on cookie plates and tins every year?
This year, Brand Castle a maker of fun cookie baking kits, puts gingerbread in action. The brand's new In the Mix Ninjabread Cookie kit includes the cookie mix, decorating supplies and ninja cutters in four poses: two kickers, one that could be flying through the air and one in a defensive position.
Pipe on their clothes and scowling expressions, and they'll delight ninja-loving kids and adults alike. And, hopefully, this bit of fun won't be offensive to any true and living ninja warriors.
Making the 20 cookies requires butter, honey, powdered sugar and a baking pan. Prices can change often at Amazon, but the kit was selling for $14.14 when we checked.
Just want to get your hands on some action cutters? There are a few options, including a set sold by Urban Outfitters. Fred, the brand that makes humorous household products (and likely the original Ninjabread cookie cutters) offers a set of three for about $10. They also make ABC cookie cutters, as in "already been chewed." For a smart gag gift or two, FredandFriends.com is worth a look. We love the "Dinner Winner," a $20 gameboard-style plate and a tray that can turn eating veggies into victory.
