I'm not sure why I haven't made a gingerbread house before. It might be because they look like hard work (and I'm on holiday, see!?) and it might be because it won't last a day in the Durban humidity once it's constructed.
But, despite the reasons not to, this year I did.
I' won't share the template with you - because it was a bad one! (Whether the architect or the builder is to blame, I can't say!)
But I will share that using melted white chocolate would be my choice of "glue".
It's pretty much the only thing I'll do the same again next time.
So, yes - I'll be making one again next year. (insert resigned, weary, what-am-I-doing-to-myself voice here!)
