    Default It's that time already - Gingerbread 2012!

    I can't believe it's been a year since the last one but it has. And here's this years Gingerbread house. We went for Santa's workshop, with a nod to the Olympics!



    Here are the elves hard at work inside the workshop ---



    sending the finished gifts out to the sleigh on the conveyor belt.



    It turns out Santa is a team GB supporter - and Tom Daley trains there! You'd think a warmer climate might work better for diving - but that's Santa's magic for you!




    There are more pics here on my blog if you're interested. Thanks for looking - and all the best for the holiday season however you spend it!!

    I love it - Really great - every time I look I see something else I hadn't seen before!!!
    Sometimes I'm indecisive, other times I just can't make my mind up :mysmilie_515:

    OMG, Soo, that's just fabulous! Really wonderful. How long does it take you to do? Can you then bear to eat it after all the work?

    Thanks Dips - it's not quite as professional as your cake-y goodies but we do have a lot of fun! It's made by myself, my best friend, her husband and their 4 children (aged 10 3/4 to 18!). We've been doing one each year for 21 years now. Lots of sugar, sweets, Christmas music and fun.

    I bake the pieces the day before, and construction and decoration take us about 5 or 6 hours (with a 45 minute break for pizza while the roof sets!) I don't eat it - but it does get eaten by the children attending my best friend's annual Christmas party which is always the following Sunday. Deconstruction takes about 4 seconds.
