Each Christmas I make a gingerbread house, so here’s the 2016 effort. My inner perfectionist would say I’ve done better in previous years and that it’s a bit messy, however, I should probably just get over it (big life problems..) and accept that it’s pretty good considering it’s nearly 2ft tall and all edible. Hope you like it, and Merry Christmas!
To give the illusion of someone being home, I built fairy lights into the house and created windows with melted sweets (there were lots more windows at the back… I probably should’ve given their placement a bit more thought). The lights have a strobe setting as well which I enjoy- kind of makes it look like a weird woodland acid rave house (but a festive one).
All the best for the new year everyone, and happy baking!
