Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day filled with love, laughter and lots of pressies.
My mod gingerbread house was a success – not that it was all smooth sailing. I completely forgot to bake the back wall so had to do an extra batch of gingerbread at the last minute and I was not at all confident that the lifesaver besser block wall would hold, but it did! Hooray! That royal icing is amazing stuff. I was very restrained on the lollies and adornments this year. For some reason I just wanted to keep it simple and putting all the extra marshmallows and lollies all over the house just seemed to go against the whole mid-century modern theme. But the rocky road chimney was very well received and I’ve made a little habit of using the star anise over the door of my houses. So without further ado here is the making of and the finished Mod Gingerbread house.
