Two Gingerbread Houses and a Mini Army

What time is it? Gingerbread time! It's that time of year that I spend hours making gingerbread houses that I won't even eat. Other people enjoy them though and that's what counts. Also they look cute.

Gingerbread Houses

This year I thought I'd make a few smaller ones so I could distribute them between more people. In my mind I thought they would come out smaller than they did, I ended up with only two out of one batch of dough. I probably could have squeezed three out of it but instead I made a bunch of cute mini gingerbread men too.

Gingerbread Men

I found some nice cellophane gift bags in poundland of all places! I felt a bit bad putting the little men in there though and tying it up, I thought "they won't be able to breathe, they'll suffocate!". Silly me XD

I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in me sharing the template I used for the houses this year as I made it myself? Leave me a comment if you would and I'll make a printable version of it.


  1. They look good! Poor wee gingermen lol! A couple of pin pricks they'll be fine.

    I'd give them a try but I'm hopeless at baking! I'm also lactose intolerant which makes a lot of baking difficult! Though there are dairy free alternatives I can use.

    1. Awwh that must be tough >< When I started out baking I was rubbish too, practice makes perfect though!

  2. Omg, those are amazing! I wish I could bake :D

    1. You should give it a go :) If you can follow instructions you can bake!
