Gingerbread in white

Hi lovelies! : )
Sorry for being a bit late - I'm frantically trying to get ready for Christmas! Gifts to be wrapped, cakes to be baked and cards to be written.. and less than two days left to finish it all! : )

This gingerbread house has been a funny but rather challenging project. Last year, I made several miniature gingerbread house. This year, I brought back form Sweden a complete set for a traditional one, and I decorated it with white glace. Surely the final result might have been more precise! ; )

The beautiful tiny reindeer cookie that you can spot in these pics was a little advent gift from my mom. It quickly became the watch of the gingerbread house! : )

One last little tip for gift wrapping: some cute, neutral wrapping paper paired with golden twine, glittery ribbon and maybe a tiny ornament, such as gold sprayed berries or a miniature Christmas bubble.
I found this option to be a cute, quick and overall very much useful strategy to wrap my presents, and I hope you'll like it too! : )

Silly pic of the day: a very grumpy cat looks in disappointment at the pre-Christmas mess and rush in our home  : )


  1. I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


  2. Het huisje ziet er prachtig uit. Ik wens jou ook hele fijne kerst en een mooi 2013.

    Groeten Xandra
