After last year’s success with our gingerbread house, I decided to give it a try again this year. Except that this year the stakes were a little higher. After all, last year I had been able to work with a ready-made kit – just putting the pieces together and decorating them. This year, I had to do it all from scratch. So I shaped everything, baked it, and by the time I was ready, my friends came to help decorating. And guess what! This year it actually turned into a whole gingerbread village! Because, aside from the big “mansion”, we also created a dozen tiny houses which we sprinkled with candy and coconut flakes.
Whether it will be as delicious as it looks … we’ll see!
