I realise that I haven't been updating this blog as much as I should. Don't worry, I haven't had a baker's block! I've just had so much stuff on for the past two months with GCSEs, family stuff and general charging around England, that I've been crashing whenever I get a moment Anyway, I'll do an update of what you've missed!
I made my first ever gingerbread house! It wasn't perfect but I was pretty proud of my first attempt! Unfortunately it's still sitting on my sideboard untouched as I made it for Christmas and took it to my dad's house but no one wanted to break it. I melted down some clear mints and made cool windows! I used melted white chocolate for a covering of the roof as I ran out of eggs for my royal icing. The royal icing for the gingerbread was quite easy to make but it took a while to set so I had this sort of scaffolding propping up every piece of gingerbread and taking over half my kitchen in the process!
There's my cat, Casper just chilling in the background....
