Gingerbread House with the Daring Bakers
Happy Holidays Everyone!
The December 2009 Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to you by Anna of Very Small Anna and Y of Lemonpi. They chose to challenge Daring Bakers’ everywhere to bake and assemble a gingerbread house from scratch. They chose recipes from Good Housekeeping and from The Great Scandinavian Baking Book as the challenge recipes.
There were two recipes chosen by Anna and Y but since I was running last minute with the challenge and I had read a lot on the Bakers Challenge forums about how many people had problems with the two recipes I decided to use my own recipe which I know never fails, doesn’t shrink or go out of shape and therefore is perfect for a gingerbread house, I hope it still counts? This is my recipe here on a previous post of gingerbread hearts. I would definitely recommend this recipe for taste and reliability.
I used the royal icing to fix my house together not the sugar glue and it work perfectly and was very quick to make. The log affect on the side of the house is from chocolate finger biscuits.
