Blogmas – Ginger breadhouse

Good evening friends,

Christmas night, my partner and I, decided to construct our gingerbread house.
I had bought the house a few weeks ago from B&M for £5, which included a bag of white icing, multicoloured sweets, candy sails and candy canes.
I picked a couple more packs of sweets to decorate, and eat on the way.

For years I’ve wanted to play the Christmas hat drinking game.
A Christmas hat is placed on the TV – whenever a Character lines up with the hat to look as though you are wearing it, you have a drink.
We chose Die Hard, and yes, it IS a Christmas Film.

Well, for the duration of the film I had a drink or icing bag permanently attached to my hand.

Constructing the house was a bloomin challenge.

Yes we may of had a fair few drinks, but the sides of the house had crumbed in the box, which we knew would cause an issue when constructing.

The final product (during the few seconds it stayed together)

Yes the resemblance is uncanny

We decided to make the crashing house look deliberate, and eventually poured ourselves into bed at 1.30 in the morning.

The house went straight into the bin the next morning, safe to say it was memorable and a good laugh, maybe it’ll stand for a few minutes next year!
