The end of 2012 was a busy one, mainly due to moving into our new Edinburgh office. The December #Thirstday kicked off the celebrations and officially christened our new abode. As a moving in/Christmas present, Sainsbury’s kindly gave us a Gingerbread House home baking kit. As resident muffin baker, I was (willingly) tasked with making this house.
The contents provided me with an exciting challenge. I had my gingerbread mixture which I just added water to and rolled out. Using the templates provided I cut out the walls, roof and chimney sections and baked in the oven.
Once all of the sections were cooked and cooled. I made up the icing that was provided and got to work cementing the house together and decorated it with colourful sweets. The end result was somewhat wonky but I was incredibly proud. Now the house is in the process of being demolished by all the Yardies and it looks as if there has been in terrible earthquake in Gingerbread land.
Sainsbury’s have lots of Christmas food and drink ideas which can be made all year round. I know everyone here is more than happy to devour this festive treat in January.
