Construction Phase 1 complete

Tomorrow afternoon we will be making a Gingerbread House, but before that can happen the pre-fabrication of building materials must take place. So that’s what I’ve been doing tonight. Because sleep is so over-rated.

I could have simply re-used the pattern from previous years but I was getting kind of bored with doing the same thing year after year. About a month ago Megan was musing on the question of how to do an Aussie gingerbread house and I got all inspired and stuff. So tonight I made a new pattern, this time of a house with a verandah out the front (at least I hope that’s what I’ve made! I was kind of tired.)

Here’s the pattern being cut out in the dough.

Gingerbread in the raw

And here are all the bits, baked and ready for Construction Phase 2 tomorrow afternoon.

Damn my house smells good just now.

    Hi There! I’m hoping that’ll make an appearance on Christmas day! Looks yummy. The shape looks fab – any chance of an old rockin’ chair and some gum trees?
    Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday,
