I remember a failed attempt at a gingerbread house many years ago, which probably ended in tears. This year however, my mama and I had another go at it and I don’t think we did too bad.
We cheated slightly using a pepparkakshus kit that we found at a Swedish Christmas fair but the construction and decoration was all us. The roof is slightly mismatched and our choice of icing was way too watery to stay in place but we were still happy with the finished look. This could definitely be a new yearly tradition- especially as there’s lots of room for improvement!
