  • Building with ginger bread is a bit of a tradition I grew up with: I was 4 when I told my mum I don’t like birthday cakes so instead she started to make me ginger bread sceneries for birthdays. There was a castle with princesses and an underwater world with light houses and ships… that “cake” I got used to be the talk at my tiny village school. Somehow that was extended to making ginger bread houses/ sceneries for Christmas. We always made them from scratch (first we made the pastry but we also drew the forms on baking paper, cut them out and used them on the pastry), which may be the reason for them looking a bit wobbly and “creative” 😉 but making them used to be fun and eating them quick and delicious. I also remember feeling proud when I for the first time was allowed to attach the pieces together with melted hot sugar, I felt so big. Obviously decorating the houses was the first thing we did- Since I had my children, I just haven’t been up to making any, only “normal” ginger bread, but I have such fond memories and now when they are already 3 and 4 I think it would be time to start making them together again. I believe this was the last once I made: https://freebutfun.wordpress.com/2014/11/14/before-christmas/ HOpe you have good times making some too!
