Gingerbread house 2010 - Mark 1


Hello!

Friday afternoon has arrived - and I hope you're all winding down already or at least thinking about it!  We're ramping up because tomorrow is our big garage sale but hopefully tomorrow afternoon we'll have a lot less stuff to store and a little bit more cash - wish us luck!

Last night I had a relaxing night doing some Gingerbread House decorating with Corrie - we chatted, iced, (she) breastfed and made our adornments for the houses.  I wanted to be a bit minimalist after last year but I'm not sure if I went too minimalist - it's an all or nothing kind of thing - it's hard to know when to stop adding lollies!

I did get a lot of compliments on my roof on the night which I used some left over ready-to-roll icing along with the gorgeous cookie cutter - yes, the very one I'm giving away 10 of this week (along with a candy cane one) - it was fun.

Here's our pics!

 Ze roof, I love it!  I covered it with edible glitter ($3.20 from Inspired by Chocolate)
so it glistens in the light - can just see it glowing next to the Christmas tree!

And the front door - made with icing with fruit ring and cachous.

All wrapped up and ready to go (mine  on left, Corries on the right)

thanks for coming it was soooo much fun! I had a ball and can't wait to do it again!

I love your house and was telling the playgroup mums at church today how impressive your roof was!

Those are fantastic, my kids make some every year. Every year I scrape royal icing off the floor and mutter never again but still I do it! I think it's the giggles.

Ooh pick me for a cookie cutter, my daughter wants to do a gingerbread house this year and we would love to have one of those.

Can you make the gingerbread yourself or is it much better to get a kit do you think?

They're brilliant, both of them! And very clever using the snowflake cutters :)
