Gingerbread House

Here is the gingerbread house that we built yesterday afternoon. I bought the moulds from http://www.chefstoolbox.com.au/. The kids had lots of fun. I think they enjoyed eating the lollies as much as decorating.

Kayla and I did the pre assembly, before the kids got home. I made Zac come and help, he put one lolly on!!!
Jarred had great steady hands, for putting the lollies on

Kloe worked out the piping bag and was a little whiz with it. She piped and Jarred stuck.
And their finished creation.

Gingerbread recipe

125g Butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup treacle
1 egg yolk
2 1/2 cups SR Flour
1 Tbs ground ginger
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp bicarb

Cream butter and brown sugar. Add treacle and egg yolk, mix until smooth. Add to sift dry ingredients. Roll out on a floured bench. Cut as desired. Bake at 160 until golden.
And the gingerbread men we made last week
