This is a great gift idea, fairly simple to make and loads of fun to decorate! You can paint on letters on each carriage to form a name or just do an extra long train to have at a birthday party. Great addition to gingerbread house(s) to make a whole gingerbread village! **I use self-raising flour for this as it makes a more "bubble-like" 3D train but you can use plain.** THIS RECIPE MAKES GOOEY GINGERBREAD not hard!** This will make a very long train!!
