This cute gingerbread house will keep for up to 1 week. Best made a couple days before Christmas. Don't forget it's edible! Best served when kids are around so they can crack it open and find the treats hidden inside!
Tip: Before cutting gingerbread to size, make a test run with cardboard cut-outs to ensure pieces will fit together.
Gift idea: wrap completed gingerbread house in clear celephane and tie with a pretty ribbion. Take to a Christmas party or give as a gift.
