Gingerbread Houses

Sarah's Kitchen went on tour yesterday as my friend was having a Gingerbread House decorating party. We all turned up to find she had been busy baking away and had a house, already assembled for each of us to decorate! As I wasn't involved in the baking I'm not sure what recipe she used but I would recommend this one from Tales from a Giants Wood as I can vouch for it being very yummy!

We had bags full of sweets, icing and food colouring (the amount of combined sugar and E numbers would have been enough to cause a riot in a primary school class!) plus the obligatory mulled wine, mince pies and Christmas songs.

Everyone joined in, even though some had never iced before and there were some works of art created!

Here is my attempt

And some of the others!


  1. These all look fantastic Sarah, and what a splendid idea having a gingerbread party for grown ups! I bet there was a lot less cleaning up afterwards than when I have done this for children's parties - floor, table, and everything needs washing 3 times at least!

    Thank you for the link to the gingerbread too.

  2. Not as beautiful as yours but we all had a fab time, I'm not sure about less clearing up but at least we all helped! No problem about the link your gingerbread was delicious :) For years I said I didn't like anything with ginger in and then had to give in and admit how fab it is!
