Here is my St Valentine's Day Gingerbread House. My daughter and I spent a happy hour or two on Sunday decorating it. We went slightly over the top with hearts, but why not?
It was great fun to decorate, and is now sitting on a themed table awaiting her friends, who are coming to decorate heart shaped cookies on Friday afternoon, after school.
Once they have decorated their cookies the girls can then eat the house and the giant Gingerbread people (who came from Waitrose!)
Maybe I should have subtitled this post, Healthy Eating!
I will be entering this into the Seasonal Gingerbread Challenge, run by... me, this month!
|Plenty of hearts|
|The mints are for the windows|
|Jelly hearts and wrapped chocolate hearts|
|When I saw these Gingerbread People at the Waitrose|
Spring show, I just knew I would be buying them!
|We used hearts instead of a door!|
|The mints worked really well, the windows are super|
|Hearts, and lots of pink with sprinkles|
|The sides of the house are simple|
|And the roof is pretty, even from a bird's eye view|
|The other side of the house, equally lovely|
|He is full of admiration|
|The table is Valentine themed|
|The girls (and their mothers) should enjoy these treats!|
