Thanks! I should have come here first rather than googling for gingerbread for an age.

Silly question, if we are putting on smartie eyes do they go on before or after they've come out of the oven?

if you put them on before they'll probably just crack so stick them on after with a bit of glace icing{ remember to make some indents before you cook though or they'll keep falling off)
