I'm not one to back away from a challenge, and when I realised that my 6 year old would never get to enjoy a gingerbread house because she's coeliac, I decided to rectify this. Forget the fact I've never made or eaten a gingerbread house in my life. I decided last week that one of our Christmas activities would be this.
So today that's what we did. I've been researching gingerbread houses on the net for the past couple of weeks, found a recipe I liked, changed it because I can't help myself, and dived in. We made mini ones first, which we decorated this afternoon. The large one in the background will be decorated tomorrow morning, now the girls & I have had experience decorating gingerbread houses!!
What fun we had! Even Mr E had a go. I haven't photographed his or mine, as they are the worst looking houses of the lot... we both piled as many lollies as we could on them & they look ridiculous. Makes you wonder who the real children are in this house.
