Gingerbread House

Gingerbread House

Ever made a Gingerbread House? No, me neither so when I received an email from Tesco Real Food asking if I wanted to try making one...I thought why not, how hard can it be? Thanks to the How to video on the Tesco Real Food website it really wasn't that difficult at all (barring a small incident with a boiled sweet!). The video goes through everything in a step by step manner  - useful it it's your fist time. Granted, Kate does make it look effortless...and she doesn't have two excitable children wanting to join in the decorating but it's certainly not as tricky as I had first imagined.

My effort above obviously isn't going to win any prizes (I am artistically challenged at the best of times) but it's a lovely little project to do with the children on a wet and windy December afternoon, of which there have been plenty of those over the last few weeks!

As well as the How to Video guide, Tesco's are also offering advice on all matters cooking related via Twitter. On Christmas Eve (10am-8pm) and Christmas Day (8am-4pm) they are only a tweet away, eager to help avert any impending culinary disasters in your house. All you have to do is direct your food related question to @tescorealfood and they will get back to you with any advice, tips and practical help that could literally save the day!

Thanks Tesco Real Food for sending me all the ingredients to make the gingerbread house.
