Did you know…
Gingerbread is very popular in many countries, but the first documented instance of figure-shaped gingerbread-biscuits appearing was in the court of Elizabeth I of England. She had the gingerbread figures made and presented in the likeness of some of her important guests.
Gingerbread became widely available in the 18th century. There are many varieties of gingerbread across different countries. The term gingerbread is often used to translate the French term pain d’épices (literally “spice bread”) or the German term Lebkuchen or Pfefferkuchen (pepperbread, literally: pepper cake).
