Decorating a Gingerbread House - Blogmas Day 18

Tuesday, December 18, 2018

It's getting close to Christmas now, meaning it's a time to inject some festive spirit into your day whilst also treating yourself to a delicious snack, so why not combine the two and make a gingerbread house? Me and Aiden had a go at doing this the other day and it was actually a really enjoyable activity! I thought I'd share this on my blog and hopefully inspire you to give it a go, so keep reading to find out more and see how it turned out.

We started with a pre-made gingerbread house kit, which was incredibly useful as it provided all of the gingerbread pieces, icing and decorations. This meant it was a lot less time consuming and our efforts could be focused on the fun part - decorating! The sweets included probably aren't the most festive, but they are girly and delicious which is all that matters in my opinion!

If I'm honest, decorating a gingerbread house isn't as easy as it looks. The gingerbread pieces had markings on them to guide us when doing things like the door and windows, but piping the icing neatly was still quite difficult. However, it was really fun to do and I loved deciding on all the cute patterns and ways of spreading out the sweets, especially doing the roof.

Once all of the pieces were decorated, I then stuck them all together with the icing, which is normally done first but I found that it was a lot easier to decorate them when flat. It's actually really difficult sticking it all together as they kept sliding around and falling, but once it was all together it held well and looks really impressive.

I'm actually very pleased with how the gingerbread house turned out, as I expected it to be rubbish considering how difficult it was! I'd highly recommend doing one of these as it was an enjoyable way to spend the evening, plus now I get to indulge in eating it all!

Thank you very much for reading this blog post, and I hope that you're still enjoying blogmas! I'll see you again tomorrow for the final week of blogmas, so make sure you stay tuned for that!

Love from Daisy x
