The other day at Little Miss Daydream’s kindergarten the kids made a lovely gingerbread house. The following day they were supposed to eat it…unfortunately the ants arrived before the kids (this is a down side of living in a hot Country at Christmas time).
Today’s project was born after seeing disappointment in my child’s eyes.
To make the house:
- 200 gr. butter
- 200 gr. sugar
- 400 gr flour
- 2 eggs
To “glue” and build the house I used buttercream icing:
- 140 gr. butter
- 280 gr icing sugar
- 1 or 2 tbsp milk
- food colouring (if you like)
To decorate the house:
- different kind of sweets (the ones you love most)
It’s been a great project and it’s been lovely working as a family with excellent team working skills. Hoorray!
