Build a gingerbread structure of your choice. Take photos and post them in this thread for the rest to judge. Winner is crowned STAR EG BAKER.
1) Everyone welcome.
2) You can make your own gingerbread (preferable) or use prefab kits like this one - http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/90218783/
3) Some have indicated that the strucure should be 100% edible, including any support structures. Not sure what the rest think, I'll edit this rule when we decide.
Probably around mid-December or we could push it to Xmas day itself. Either way we'll give you enough time to plan the structure, create the design, get your baking bits in order, practice a few bakes etc etc.
A Few Points
Take photos along the way and keep the thread updated. This is about having fun - bake with family and friends, build together, share
