I simply knew that this month challenge would be baking a gingerbread house! I used Y's recipe 'cause I didn't plan on eating the houses anyway and I had all the ingredients. My idea was making mini gingerbread houses as tree ornaments for our Christmas tree. Oh boy what have I let myself into. It was a serious pain measuring out the dough (I was literally measuring it with a yardstick and a spirit level!). Decorating on the other hand was sooo fun! I really enjoyed it and the finished houses were loved by everyone, they were a prefect fit to the best Christmas ever.
I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves, Oh and my mom took some paparazzi pictures of me so my well covered identity is revealed! Ok not really, but at least you know now how the back of my head looks :P - Hope everybody had a super Christmas!
The December 2009 Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to you by Anna of Very Small Anna and Y of Lemonpi. They chose to challenge Daring Bakers’ everywhere to bake and assemble a gingerbread house from scratch. They chose recipes from Good Housekeeping and from The Great Scandinavian Baking Book as the challenge recipes.
