Linnea and I have done a little bit of Christmas baking this year. I'm not a great cook, but I can bake! Well, having said that, what I bake might not end up looking very good - but it tastes fantastic, and I do enjoy baking!
We have made ginger bread biscuits and saffron buns in different variations. My favourite are the ones with white chocolate in them, mmm!
Linnea also wanted to do a Gingerbread House again. We tried to go for the easy solution and buy a ready made one, but unfortunately they were sold out at IKEA already weeks before Christmas! Lucky for us a nice friend had one extra for us, thank you Birgitta!
It's the decorating that is the fun part anyway!
This year I mounted it just with the icing. No burned fingers this time!
Have I shown you one of my childhood gingerbread creations? Mormor and Morfar were pretty awesome gingerbread house makers - once they made the house we lived in then, in correct scale, with our cars and all the trees in the garden and all! Once they made this:
Yeah... a whole circus!
Linnea and I will have to step up our game for next year I think!
