Christmas Gingerbread House Making

The other night I had the most fun in ages! For the first time, I went to a Gingerbread House Making evening with 3 of my closest girlfriends. 

It really was as simple as gluing everything together with a piping bag of icing.  

And with so many lollies on offer, it was hard not to test a few as we created our unique little houses.

Here are all our very creative and delicious looking gingerbread houses. 
And that little white snow ball just refused to stick to my house!

Before you wrap them at the end of the night, there is the "sprinkling of the icing sugar" ceremony. Then, lots of shiny cellophane and spirally ribbons.

They all looked so pretty. Almost too good to eat. Almost!

I'm not a huge fan of gingerbread,
but I'm definitely looking forward to picking off the lollies.

Can't wait till next year now!
