A Gingerbread House Request

My little boy has asked for two things for Christmas:  that I make a gingerbread house and name place cookies.  I did these a few years ago and they obviously made a big impression on him.  So sweet that he has asked for things I have made and not toys!

I made this gingerbread house from scratch, my own template and gingerbread. If any one wants instructions or an easy recipe, please leave a comment and I will do a post on it as I make this year's house.

...and the name place chocolate cookies.
This is a fabulous chocolate sugar cookie recipe found here.  I ice them with home made royal icing. 

My daughter has her flamenco concert tonight and her dress is green and black. They are meant to have a matching flower clip for their hair.  We've just made a lovely flower out of the Woolworth's green reusable shopping bag. I love my glue gun!

  1. Hi Fiona,
    We just did a Gingerbread house for the 2nd year in a row. The kids loved doing it last year and so we did it again and it was a huge success. I think next year I may be brave enough to cook one from scratch. I would love to hear how you did yours! I love reading your blog too! It's great to be in Sydney and to have blogs available from Sydneysiders that show creative interesting women.

  2. I love your gingerbread house - how much fun. I hope to make one too this year. Happy Christmas.

  3. I would live the recipe and template for the gingerbread house. My kids live making them and they are teenagers. We usually use a kit.
