my true love gave to me ~ A gingerbread house to eat
Strike those gingerbread houses off the list!
Well not really. We'll probably make more. Especially now I've done it the cheats way.
But I've fulfilled the "Remember the tradition where we take a gingerbread house to school" tradition
This year though I was lazy.
I've been thinking all year about what type of biscuits would be suitable to use so I don't have to cook the gingerbread. Does that make it not authentic? I'm not sure the kids liked Gingerbread anyway.
I experimented with Nice biscuits, Milk Biscuits and Scotch finger.
I think it worked well.
My icing was a little too runny, so it went everywhere. I'll never win 'neatest gingerbread house award' but at least the roof didnt fall in like last time I like the messy cottage look I've go going on here. Well not really. But there's always next time.
There were no complaints from the kids at school who handed back almost licked clean trays.
The after school care kids actually ran us down to eat the last leftovers as we were leaving school. We had to run from the crowd and jump in the car. Seriously. I thought a riot was gonna start. Those after school ladies were giving me the evil eye.
Yeah I rock I know.
