You will not believe this, but I took a series of pictures of how to make "TriffiDs yumyum Pizza" only two days ago. Just have to find the time to type a cunning story to make reading worthwhile... Laughing

If his "present in the post" is anything to go by then you should get his cooking instructions by Christmas 2012 (if the world hasn't ended by then).

Hmmm - my mother in law does all the cookie-stuff, but as every year, I made my first class gingerbread-house deluxe.
I took a quick snapshot to show off:


There is a screeching owl on the roof (we have one of those in the woods behind the house and my wife is really looking forward to biting its head off) and a blue eyed moose in the front right (I named that one 'init').


You don't need to build a house from it, of course. I've made cookies from the rest of the dough and the sugar icing.
I usually have to make gingerbread-cookies two or three times before Christmas, because people tend to carry it away in big bags. So if that is what you were looking for, I will try to translate the recipe, which is a rather challenging task.
I have to warn you: There is a million of ingredients and it takes some time...

The only good 'cookies' I can do are those:



Yummmmmmyyyyy

OMG, how can anyone do those?!?!
How you make the walls look like that!?
In my difficult childhood those houses always collapsed.

Very impressive indeed.

What did you use for the foundations?

Do you employ a gardener to keep the ginger lawn nice and short?

Thank you! Last years house was much better. I had more time to prepare it. There even was a picket fence around the house and more stuff glued to it.

The walls are easy. Just take a sharp and pointed knife and draw the patterns (bricks for the oven and wood for the rest) with the tip of it on the dough before baking it. After you take it out of the oven it looks quite convincing. Very Happy
To keep it from collapsing is quite a task, but I get along with very tenacious icing (it is one well whipped egg white and 250g icing sugar) and a few toothpicks that I stick through the walls. I remove them the next day.

Foundations? You mean the plate, the house is built on? It is all gingerbread. The only exception I usually make is that I buy some marzipan and food color and sculpture Hansel, Gretel and the witch and put them into the garden. But my cruel and ruthless wife always calls them "Those hideous Zombies". And I wanted peace this year. Laughing
Don't you do gingerbreadhouses with your children, Spliffy? I can only recommend it. I once made one with the children of a friend of ours and they were a b s o l u t e l y enthusiastic about it. They simply loved it. Especially when you do large ones like this.
