What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…
On Friday I showed you Bakemasters December triumph – gingerbread houses!
And I promised you a recipe or two. For funsies, or maybe because I’m crazy, I decided to try two different gingerbread recipes. The first was one I found in an old Food Network Christmas Magazine:
It was ok, but pretty bitter tasting and kinda difficult to work with. I much preferred the second recipe I tried. I found it in an old children’s Christmas activity book that a friend of mine left behind when she moved.
You need three cutouts. I used a thick paper, but anything will do – an old cereal box for example. The first cutout is for the sides. It’s a rectangle – 3.5 x 3 inches. The second cutout is for the roof. It’s a more elongated rectangle 4 x 5.5 inches. The final pieces is the front and back facade of the house. It’s the one in the bottom left of the above picture. It’s 6 inches wide, 3 inches high on the sides, and 5.5 inches high in the middle.
Enjoy =) (PS If you want to print the recipe, use the print function below and you’ll be able to take out the pictures.)
