Orthodox Christmas: Gingerbread House


Orthodox Christmas is on January 7, Santa gave us a box. It was a set of gingerbread cookies and decorations for the assembly of a gingerbread house. When we started to make the house, adults helped children or vice versa - everybody had fun.
First, we examined the gingerbread cookies and started making icing for drawings and gluing parts of the house.

 

Painting you have to compress the icing bag with force. The first drawings appeared on the front and back sides of the house.



Then the responsible work began, gluing of gingerbread details with icing. Front, rear walls, two side walls.



We fixed both halves of the roof with a thick layer of icing, put the chimney and started decorating the house. There are marzipan people, marmalade, cookies and bagels in the set. We have had enough icing and all the decorations were placed on the gingerbread house.




Have you ever had such set for Christmas? Would you like to make the gingerbread house with your loved ones?

P.S. This house is edible during two months, if stored in cool conditions.

    The house was very nice. No, I have never made a gingerbreadhouse. But I'm sure it was very fun.

    1. Oh, Sara 'to eat or not to eat' - what is the question. I'd like to eat only gingerbread because I do not eat much sugar. I hope my family will help in eating.

  9. That is, of course, also a German custom. I have never made a house myself but have given bought ones as presents to children. I like to eat gingerbread biscuits and spiced cakes with chocolate on them. Lebkuchen and Spekulatius in German.

    1. Dear Friko,
      I'm glad to hear from you. You're right, this is a German custom and this set is named Hexenhaus. It was bought on internet here, made in Germany. I love gingerbread as well and often use ginger in cooking meals.
      Thanks for your comment.
