I’ve always dreamt of making a Gingerbread House! I’ve seen it in so many movies… and each time I desired to make it, at Christmas time… Moreover, a few years ago I had made gingerbread men and I liked the spiced pastry a lot. But, of course, decorating cookies with icing and actually building a cookie house it’s not the same 😉 Anyway, this year I decided to try, with the help of my family, in order to surprise Elisa. So, last Sunday, my brother-in-law projected the house and made the paper patterns, my husband and I made gingerbread, and my sister bought decoration stuff. After lunch, we we get started, operation: Gingerbread House 2013! And amidst chatter and chuckles we spent a great Sunday afternoon together, building and decorating our little house. When Elisa woke up, she came into the kitchen to nose around, and to her great astonishment she found something on her scale! She wanted to grab it, she said that was Chip ‘n’ Dale’s house 😛 In the last days, here in London, while wandering around Christmas street markets, we saw several, from the most classical ones, to the most unusual ones… There was a super-Christmas atmosphere!
So, today, December 1st, I’ll get Christmas too and leave you my recipe, so that you can make it and surprise your kids.
Have a nice Sunday, read you tomorrow 😉
Here you can find the house project, and here you’ll find the .pdf file with the patterns to print and cut.
