Gingerbread House


I decided to take a little blogging break over the Christmas period and decided to just take the time to relax, in between all the mad rush of Christmas shopping, and do one of the things I enjoy most... baking.  There is just something I find so therapeutic and relaxing about baking, so I decided this Christmas to tackle the one thing I've always wanted to bake at Christmas time... a gingerbread house.

Now I'm no professional when it comes to baking, it is just something I like to do on the side for a bit of fun.  So to me this gingerbread house was a success based on the sheer fact that when it came to putting the roof on the walls didn't collapse into a mound of gingerbread crumbs as I had envisioned. It might not be quite as perfect as I had hoped, but I'm still a little disheartened to demolish it as I'm quite proud of it for a first attempt.

Hope you all had a great Christmas and got everything you asked Santa for!  I was well and truly spoilt this Christmas and have lots to share with you in the next few posts.  My favourite present of all though was the Macbook Air I got, which I'm using right now to type this post, from my wonderful boyfriend.  I never even dreamt that would be waiting under my tree this Christmas.
