Cocoa gingerbread men – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

Cocoa gingerbread men

Place butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan and heat over a low heat until they melt completely, then leave to cool.
In the meantime, separately, sift into a bowl and then mix flour, cocoa, ginger and bicarbonate.

Incorporate the egg yolk and the butter mix and work quickly until you obtain a homogeneous dough, then wrap it with cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours, or better yet overnight.

Once the resting time has passed, take the dough again, roll it out on a lightly floured work surface into a fairly thin sheet (about 0.5 cm) and cut out the little men with a cutter.

Place them on the baking tray lined with baking paper, well separated from each other, and cook them for about 10 minutes or until lightly golden in a fan oven preheated to 180°C, then leave to cool completely.

Start whipping the egg whites, then add the icing sugar first and then the lemon juice: it will not be necessary to whip the egg whites completely, just obtain a smooth and dense, but still fluid, icing.

Place the icing in a piping bag with a smooth and very thin nozzle and decorate your little men as you like, also using sprinkles, then leave to rest for at least 7-8 hours.

The cocoa gingerbread men are ready, all you have to do is let the icing dry and serve them.

First of all, if you haven't already done so, prepare the gingerbread men, let them cool and decorate them as you like.

Then move on to the preparation of the cake: whip the butter into pieces with the sugar until you get a cream, then add honey and vanilla and then, 1 at a time, also the eggs (wait until the previous one has been absorbed before incorporating the next one) .

Combine the remaining dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and all the powdered spices) in a bowl.
Incorporate the milk and water into the mixture, then the powders little by little.

Divide the mixture into the 2 molds lined with parchment paper, level the surface and bake for about 30-35 minutes in a preheated convection oven at 180 ° C, then take out of the oven and let it cool completely.

Prepare the syrup: put the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil, so that the sugar dissolves well.
Prepare the cream: whip the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Whip together the mascarpone and cream, both very cold in the fridge, finally add the 2 compounds, mixing slowly with a movement from the bottom up.

At this point you can begin to assemble the cake: divide each of the 2 bases into 2 disks (so that you have 4 total disks).

Place the first disc on the serving dish, wet it with a little wet, then stuff it with tufts of cream, after putting it in a pastry bag with a smooth and not too small spout.
Cover with the second disc and repeat: first wet it, then the cream.
Continue in the same way for the third and fourth discs.

The gingerbread cake is ready: decorate it to taste with the gingerbread men and serve.

Halloween gingerbread house – Italian Cuisine

In a bowl, combine the flour with spices, salt and baking soda.

Separately, work the eggs with molasses, sugar and butter, then also incorporate the flour mixture.
Wrap the dough with cling film and let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour.

Take back the pastry, roll it out on the floured surface in a 4-5 mm thick sheet, then cut out the 6 pieces of the house.
Prepare the decorations with the leftover pastry, then arrange everything on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper (I used 2 different baking sheets) and bake for about 15 minutes at 180 ° C, in a pre-heated ventilated oven, then let it cool.

Once the biscuits are completely cold, prepare the royal icing by working the egg white with the sugar until the mixture is smooth and fairly thick.
Divide the icing into various bowls to prepare it in different colors with the food coloring you have chosen (I used black, orange, purple and green).

Start decorating the pieces of the house first, so that they have time to dry before assembling them.

Prepare a tray or serving plate on which you will place the house and start assembling the house, using the glaze as glue.
Before mounting the roof, wait for the walls to be solid.
Finally, dedicate yourself to the decoration of the additional elements.

Once the frosting of each individual element is perfectly dry, your Halloween gingerbread house will be ready.
