Hi Steph,I just see this topic today Gingerbread ist very traditional in Germany. Mainly from Nurnberg, but it´s different from the ones you use for building houses. It´s soft and you pipe the mass on a wafer.Geograpical there are more and, in my eyes, better cakes in the south of Germany and of course in Austria. All the famouse cakes are from that region. Exaption is the christmas stollen form Dresden.If you need further help -just ask. I´ll try my best.
