For the last few Christmases I thought about making a gingerbread house but it just seemed very daunting. This year I just thought I'd go for it.
I used this gingerbread house recipe and template.
I found th dough a bit sloppy so I put it in the fridge for 15 minutes which helped firm it up.
The dough spread a little while cooking so I got my templates and cut around the pieces to neaten them up.
I read a tip a while ago about decorating all the panels before asembly. I probably ate a few too many sweets! I decided to use chocolate instead of the trastional royal icing.
I am actually amazed I managed to make a fully operational gingerbread house. I didn't take long for it to get munched on!
