I built a house with my bare hands over Christmas together with my boyfriend. Not irrelevant detail: it was a candy house made out of cookie dough. I made my first gingerbread house a couple of years back, and I have been willing to make another one for a long time. Christmas seemed like a good moment. My favorite part is decorating. I love adding details and finishing touches that make the house come alive.
We gave the candy house away to family we were visiting, with only one condition: that it should be broken and eaten that day. I am happy to announce that it was as good as it looks: delicious ;)
