a) this was completely new to me and I had never made gingerbread houses before
b) this was not the Great British Bake Off
c) I had no idea how to create curved gingerbread
After scaling back his expectations we compromised on Stoneghenge.
For the dough we used the recipe from BBC Good Food website. Be warned the recipe make tons of dough! I also made two other little houses and had lots of dough left over.
We used the inside cover of some Graze boxes for the grass and we trimmed the gingerbread pieces with a sharp knife to give them a flat surface so that they stood upright. We were so pleased with how it turned out and it looks wonderful in the lounge. We have had many compliments from our visitors.
I will be compiling the Seasonal Gingerbread House link up after tomorrow so you have a little more time if you want to link up.
