Gingerbread boxes - shelflife

(2 Posts)

Seeking baking experts !

I'm wanting to make some of the really pretty gingerbread boxes and fill them with little edible treats.

I want to give them out on Saturday and as i'm making a fair few, is it too soon to make and bake the gingerbread tonight (Wednesday) to assemble on Friday? Will they spoil by Saturday or still be edible?

I was thinking of making the box sides tonight, storing in airtight containers and then assembling on Friday. After decorating i was going to store in little cellophane bags

Any storage tips would be great!

Gingerbread lasts ages; doesn't it? I always thought it had a shelf life of a few weeks.
