Would love a UK based swap! Theme's would be preferable or one where we can sort themes with partners as opposed to a ongoing list type one

1075  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 70 ENTRIES / First ever ginger bread house on: January 03, 2012 12:39:28 PM
So - last year looking through all these competitions made me really want to make my own gingerbread house. This year I found some silicon moulds for the construction of it - and those creative juices started a flowing! I mentioned to mum (who we were at for christmas) I was thinking about making one - and she was so eager for me to do one - I then couldnt not! Which proved to be a royal PITA as the week before we were due to go i was seriously poorly with a chest infection - and spent a couple of days in bed - I then had about 3 days to wrap, pack, finish knitting my christmas gloves, make the gingerbread house and everything else needed before we could go away - so things were a little stressful! It didnt help that having spent ages making the dough - setting it together and then a couple of hours starting to decorate - I smashed the front and had to start from scratch again including making my dough!!!! The old phrase "stressed is desserts backwards" took on a WHOLE new meaning!

Anyway - after roughly 10 hours making this (including the broken one) and about 30 for ingrediants - having had to buy absolutely everything - I realised we then had the task of transporting it by car to my fiances parents (2.5 hours) and then unloading it, reloading it the next day and travelling a further 2.5 hours to my mums, in an already packed to bursting car!!!! We packed it in a cardboard box and gave it a chair to itself - surrounded by coats - and by some miracle - it made it in one piece!!!!!!

Please forgive the crap photos - especially the ones with the date plastered all over it - I forgot to turn it off before shooting - i should have used my DSLR but was so short on time it was all done with my crappy little point and shoot!

Wow - that's a lot of waffling isnt it - sorry! Onto the photo's:

from the front - the windows are made from fruit pastilles, the path chocolate buttons and the base is a silver cake tin - covered in fluff (which is FINALLY sold in the UK!) with blue edible glitter, white and lilac sugar balls and white chocolate stars (i know you can't see the base very well - sorry!)

The back - showing more details of the trees and a bit more detail of the base:

One side:

Other side complete with chimney:

This house was 100% edible - and although it wasn't as gingery as i'd have liked - tasted bloody good if I do say so myself!!!  hope you've enjoyed my ramblins and the photos!

thank you for the inspiration

OK i'm freaking out a bit - I've been going by the info in the gallery which says package two send out is 15th July - just come on here and it says 27th June which is tomorrow!!!! Which is the right date? If it's tomorrow - I'm going to be late Sad Trying so hard to get it all sorted but with a fiance in hospital an hour away and a house which needs to be spotless by the time he gets back due to him having no immune system - as well as the fact I've had visitors for the last two weeks as I don't drive - it's been rather hard! I'd be ready for July 15th but not ready to send tomorrow Sad
