Gingerbread House 2015
Last year one of my brothers and I made a gingerbread house and this year I really wanted to make another. My brother, Olly said he would help me build one again and I'm glad he did otherwise it would've turned out shit if I had done it on my own.
Instead of just building a gingerbread house, I wanted to make a garden for it (I got a bit into it haha). I wanted to make it quite pretty, so I got some pink and white marshmallows and put them all around the cake board after we'd put icing sugar on it as like a layer of snow.
I originally wanted to put candy canes at the front, like street lighting or something, but that failed... Olly came up with the idea that we could make an arch, which was actually more difficult than we thought, because it kept falling down. While it was up, it looked good. (In the picture above, the candy canes were mid falling over, oops).
Once we had decorated the house, Olly built it and we put it in the middle of the cake board. We created a pathway out of cut up marshmallows and then placed the snowman stood up at the front of the gingerbread house.
I actually love how this gingerbread house turned out:-) you can watch the video of Olly and I building it here!
Have you made a gingerbread house this year or are you going to?:-)
