I was very lucky to be sent the Fairy Tale Cottage Mould to review from Lakeland. The kits is traditionally marketed as a Christmas product but as I am partaking in the Seasonal Gingerbread House Challenge I wanted to try it for my Easter house. The kit comes with silicone moulds, to make the components of one house, two piping bags, and the recipe to make either a gingerbread or chocolate house.
The gingerbread was very easy to make, I made mine with golden syrup and substituted white sugar for the brown sugar and used lemon zest instead of ginger powder.
The kit is exceptional easy to use and makes a really impressive looking house. The gingerbread made is solid enough but still a little soft and I had no problem gluing it all together with royal icing. The finished house is very stable. The kit costs £11.99.
Just to mention a little about Lakeland, I love their products, they are inventive and creative. An extra bonus is the fact that the products come with a long term guarantee. If you end up unhappy with a product they have a no quibble returns policy even if you have had the product for a long time. I make sure I buy most of my standard kitchen, and home stuff from here as it is really handy to have that reassurance. For example I bought my Kenwood Prospero mixer from Lakeland knowing that I have that extra peace of mind.
As Lakeland is a company I buy from a lot, and trust, I have signed up to the Lakeland affiliate programme as a trial so you may see a few ads on my site. If you click through and buy something I receive 4% commission. It would be fantastic to earn a little money towards ingredients and bits for the blog. I promise that is all I am going to say!
