On my way to Gingerbread Land

So Christmas is coming and I am in charge of the decorations as my job requires.

Crafty as I am in order to decorate the Children Department of the bookshop I decided I would bake my own Gingerbread house and man, take pictures and mount these to have a huge and original Gingerbread House in the department.

Well, let’s just say my trip to Gingerbread Land didn’t finish as well as I wanted, maybe I should have packed better for the weather.

Let me give you a photo tour of my adventure.

First I grabbed my lucky gingerbread man apron:

Then got all the ingredients together:

Mixed all the spices and flour together:

Added the eggs and Golden Syrup:

Rolled the delicious dough, but at this point my husband got excited about the whole idea and did this himself:

Cut it into funny house shapes:

Put it in the oven, Mmmmmm it smelled so lovely:

Took it out before it burnt:

And put it together and decorated it:

Ok… So it doesn’t look amaaaaazing. Or at least not as amazing as I expected it to look. But I’ll be back down this street soon and I will master my Gingerbread House baking skills.

Saying this it didn’t last long at all, with so many people willing to taste the cute if a bit wobbly little house made by moi-même.
