1 day till Christmas: gingerbread house




I think this may be the hardest thing I've ever tried to bake, getting that roof to stay on was a task and a half so I'm relieved that when I removed the supports this morning in stayed intact! This is matt's christmas present from me - we decided to make each other something so I hope he approves. I followed this recipe it was really easy to follow (apart from the bit about the roof but I think I made my gingerbread a touch to thick) and the gingerbread tastes really good so even if you don't want to make a house the gingerbread alone is ace! 

Phew! Well I'm impressed with myself for posting 12 days consecutively it's been quite challenging but fun nonetheless, perhaps this is the start of some kind of new years resolution! Anyway...
