peggy porschen. in case you haven't heard of peggy porschen, she's like the goddess of fondant cakes and decorated cookies and in my opinion the BEST among all professional fondant cake designers out there. i hv all her books and this gingerbread is found under the base recipes of every single one of them. the recipe is also pretty unique in a sense that it uses a hot liquid mix whereby you boil the treacle, spices together then stir in melted butter & flour.
here. eggnog is basically a creme anglaise spiked with alcohol, exactly like your ice cream custard mixture so you can also churn it into ice cream if you like. but if you intend to do so, you'll hv to hold back on the liquor coz alcohol don't freeze.
lastly, hv a very blessed christmas and happy holidays everyone!
