This year we decided to buy a gingerbread house set from good old Ikea (I love ikea). We bought one last year, but we forgot about it, then we just ate it out of the packet.
This year I actually made it (i know!) and put it together yesterday. It looks terrible but it looks tasty.
I was really looking forward to doing it then I was told that my dad has decided to drop it on the floor. So before I even started we had a problem. We made up our royal icing and our piping bags, and stuck it back together and waited an hour for it to set.
I started to construct it. I put the whole thing together in about an hour and a half. I was watching Kung Fu Panda at the time. It was the only thing on tv.
I let that set for a while then I started to decorate it. Then the piping bag fell apart and my hands got covered in icing.
Maybe this would make a bit more sense if I told you that I have never made a gingerbread house alone before. I think I made one with my mum when I was tiny so, you gotta make room for my failures ok?
I’m really happy with how it turned out! Can’t wait to eat it!
Have a great Christmas!
