We met up last weekend to decorate our gingerbread houses and had a ridiculous amount of fun!
Get your Christmas hair-do on and make some royal icing and get cracking.
You'll also need lots of lollies...
Jars and cans provide roof support until the icing sets and sticks.
You can use a piping bag but the kids had a ball with freezer bags filled with icing and just a wee snip at one corner.
1 cup plus 2 tabs icing sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp cornflour
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp lemon juice
Combine the ingredients well and store in an air tight bowl till ready to use.
NOTE: if you use icing mixture instead of icing sugar you won't need the cornflour as it contains it already.
