Last year Megan saw ninjabread men cookie cutters online and thought it would be a fun craft to try and make some homemade. Like many brilliant ideas, it was left as just that... an idea. I didn't think about them again until I was Christmas shopping for Xavier at ThinkGeek.com. You see, I have a lot of Geek Points. So many, it's a little embarrassing. I finally decided to use a few on myself when I saw the ninjabread men cookie cutters as an option. Unfortunately, they're currently sold out at Think Geek, and the website says more won't be in until February. BUT! I did find them on Perpetual Kid. And they're on sale. Bonus.
They're just cheap little plastic shapes, but how cool are these ninjas? I used the gingerbread cookie recipe from Brown Eyed Baker. I only iced one like the picture from the box, and it was hard working with the negative space! I recommend using a popsicle stick... and patience. It came out pretty good if I do say so myself.
