Gingerbread House Competition

it doesn't take much for us to feel festive
but this is NEXT LEVEL CHRISTMASSY
welcome to the 2015 Strawberry Family Gingerbread Challenge

Step one: buy all of the gingerbread house making packs
(or you could make them yourself, but we're just too busy writing our letters to Santa)

Step two: buy all the chocolates and sweets your money can buy

Step three: try not to eat them all before you've started (hehe)

IMG_6143

Step four: on your marks, get set, BUILD!

IMG_6155

Step five: assemble all your pieces (we're talking walls, roofs and chimneys)

IMG_6164

IMG_6183

Step six: use icing to cement together. 
be careful - no huffing or puffing, you big bad wolf wannabe

IMG_6190

or you house might blow down...

IMG_6195

clearly Beth used super glue

IMG_6220

Step seven: GET CREATIVE

IMG_1319

we advise excess use of icing
