Fail

Got out my you beaut pan from my mate Francia

Found my trusty “neverfail” gingerbread house recipe which I’ve used before many a time hence the nice oily stain on the page.

I measured the ingredients, I beat them, I rolled them and I baked them. It was all going well.

Voila. Champion fail.  My homage to Christchurch. Tasted good but structurally unsound.

He had his fair share it has to be said.

    Mine did the same thing at first, fell into many pieces it did. I then built a cardboard house and covered it in parchment paper then rebuilt the house again over the cardboard house….and had to reassemble many pieces back together as well, lol. Lots and lots of frosting it took. ; ) It look a bit odd but it stood tall.

    Well done you! That shows serious commitment. I had no trouble last year, not sure if it was the heat but the roof went first then the front panel cracked. Thankfully my neighbour brought one over as a gift, bless her.

    Ours was a failure this year too! Actually the last two years. Next year, we’re using graham crackers!

    Oh no, I bought one from Ikea but the Twins ate it on the way home.
    I bet it still tasted great.

  6. At least you didn’t eat the foundations and then have it collapse. I’m sure that’s what i’d do.
