Since I can't show you how, I urge you to check out this how to. For now you can join me in laughing at my efforts.
It started off well, until I started opening up the ingredients. Then it turned into this...
It next continued into a misadventure of mess, mixing the ingredients incorrectly, dough that wouldn't stay together and finally a roof that got a bit burned. I'm no Nigella it appears. At least in the baking department.
Luckily I don't think it turned out too badly in the end. Though it does look like a child made it. I'm happy to cross it as a task done off my 30 before 30 list though.
It didn't fall to pieces which I did think would happen during the process but it all worked out well in the end. The only thing I can say is that it will definitely be better next year!
That and don't try to pour treacle.
Have you ever attempted making a gingerbread house?
