BabyCakes Gingerbread Boys

On Friday, I visited the gingerbread holiday ice castle at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  

Inspired by the movie Frozen, and the designs of "it's a small world", the display features 14 hidden Olafs.

A variety of baked goods, and frozen merchandise can be purchased in the adjoining shop.  

I was excited to see gluten free gingerbread boy cookies made by BabyCakes.  

The gingerbread boys are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, vegan, and kosher.  

Ingredients: unrefined sugar, brown rice flour, garbanzo bean flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, white sorghum flour, fava bean flour, coconut oil, pear, arrowroot, vanilla extract, ginger, cinnamon, xanthan gum, baking soda, kosher salt, and nutmeg.  

My cookie was so delicious!  It was thicker than the gingerbread boy I had last year, and it had just the right amount of sweetness and spices.  

You can also purchase gluten free gingerbread men at the gingerbread display at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, which is also selling brownie bites, ginger chocolate-chip bread, and cinnamon toastie bread from BabyCakes. 

November 30, 2014 Update - We stopped at the Grand Floridian Resort to see their Gingerbread House on Wednesday.  

Because Thanksgiving was the next day, I did not purchase the BabyCakes ginger-chocolate chip bread or the cinnamon toastie bread, though I hope to try them before Christmas.  

The BabyCakes brownie bites are being sold in packs of two.  

We did end up buying several gingerbread boys, which we did not start eating until Friday.  They were not as good as the cookie I bought at the Contemporary Resort, because they were thinner, and much harder, maybe from being a little bit stale.  With a price tag of $5.75 per cookie, I was definitely disappointed.  In the future, I will be eating my gingerbread boys the day I purchase them.
