Preserving Gingerbread Men Cookies

I have received the MOST adorable gingerbread men cookies with them in various Yoga Poses. I DO NOT want to eat them. I would LOVE to preserve them. Anyone have ideas as to how this may be done?

Greatly appreciate your insights!

Buy a clear laquer spray and coat both sides and they should last you a long long time!

or you can also buy polyurethane and coat several times.

Good Luck on these. I'd think a couple coats of shellac would do the trick. But just remember to store them in a container so children might be tempted to eat them, when not in use or decorating. Also, the shellac will not keep critters from eating them. When I was a youngster, my Brownie troop made decorative holiday homemade bread arrangements for our Mothers. Mom went to retrieve her's from the attic & a mouse had eaten part of the bread loaf.

The best way to preserve gingerbread cookies or houses is in a cardboard container. NO plastic. Seal it well so critters don't get at it and store in a cool place, like the basement. They will look all right each year but won't taste very good. In about five years they will fall apart but that's okay, just make more!
