Gingerbread House




What could be nicer at Christmas than a gingerbread house, so I got myself a kit from IKEA and set to with the icing sugar 




after I'd stuck the walls together I filled up the icing bag and I was off.


I think the hardest part was trying to make the icicles, then just when I'd finished Alexa come in from school and said
"I've took all the hanging  bits off for you grandma"!!


I don't think it will last until Christmas tea as she's itching to eat it now, I knew I should have bought two!

It looks fab! I have never made one myself, maybe when my grandaughter is a little older she will help me.

We did a great Gingerbread house this year and then the kids were like "Can we eat it now?"... And then they did! lol...
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
