I made a cute gingerbread house!



I have never made one before, and every year at least one of the kids asks for it, so I decided to have a go. While it's not perfect, the photo really doesn't do it justice and I was really pleased with the results. (And so were the kids!) I found a great recipe and set of instructions; here's the link: www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/4900/simple-gingerbread-house . The recipe for the gingerbread is vegetarian, being egg-free, and I just mixed an icing sugar and water paste for the "snow" to glue it together with, thus avoiding egg white. I used vegan margarine instead of melted butter, of course. Can't tell you about the taste yet, as we haven't had the heart to demolish it!
