    Lectar does not only make heart shaped gingerbread. As mushroom grow abundantly in the country, it is another popular shape. Actually, they have a great variety of shapes.

Moreover there is an almost infinite variety of coatings, given that the background is bright red and white is the second main color. For special occasions such as weddings, etc they can make exactly what is required and add the names.

    These gingerbread are edible but are usually ket as a souvenir and if the atmosphere is dry, they keep well for years
