4. Decorating

Decorate with poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, sesame seeds and nuts (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts).



Bake for 10 minutes at 170 °C.

6. Storing

Put gingerbread to the prepared box. When cool, add 1/4 of sliced apples to it. Change apple when needed, make sure it will not get moldy. Apple keeps gingerbread soft and supple. Gingerbread can be stored in a cool place even without apples, but before serving, move them into smaller boxes and add the apple in order to soften the gingerbread.
