Blogmas Day 12 // Gingerbread House Day

One thing that I love doing around this time of year, is decorating a Gingerbread House! When I found out Tuesday 12 December was Gingerbread House Day, I just had to decorate a Gingerbread House. I love doing this every year, every year I try and decorate some form of House, last year I decorated a Rocky Road House. Which for someone who doesn’t like Gingerbread was perfect.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a Rocky Road House, so I had to go with the traditional Gingerbread House. Oh well, it will keep Yasmine happy! Making and decorating a Gingerbread House is seen as a Christmas tradition, it’s a great way of getting the kids together and having fun. It’s interesting watching them decorate a house, using their imagination.

I have no idea how to make one, so I’ve always purchased a Gingerbread House set. These have all the ingredients you need to make and decorate your House, which makes it perfect for me! I purchased mine from Tesco for only £5, which is a perfect price for the size of House you make, but I’m sure you can purchase a similar pack in other supermarkets.

Yes, I’m 22 years old, but decorating a Gingerbread House is still fun! It passes some time and while it was a snow day, it was perfect. I love using my imagination to put together the Gingerbread House. You have a choice, follow the packaging or come up with your own, I love using the packaging as inspiration, then change little things. There seems to be more than enough sweets to create whatever you want!

I actually had a few left over which I gave to Yasmine, who this time around didn’t bug me while I was decorating. For me it is definitely becoming a tradition, maybe one day I’ll be able to make my own rather than using a set. We shall have to wait and see. This is definitely a great way to celebrate Gingerbread House Day. Unfortunately, I was unable to do it this evening, so had to do it over the weekend.

So if you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you would have already seen the Gingerbread House. Now for the big reveal!

Don’t it look soo pretty! I am actually pretty impressed with it and I hope Yasmine enjoys it, she’ll probably say there isn’t enough sweets! I love playing around with the icing, if you get it right, you’re able to make it look like snow, which is what I tried doing along the top of the house. I don’t know what happened, but one of the walls did cave in a little bit! Meaning I wasn’t able to decorate it that much, else it would have fallen in.

This is definitely an easy way to decorate a Gingerbread House, I hope you have liked this post! Will you be decorating a Gingerbread House this Christmas? If you are, I would love to see them!
