Making gingerbread houses is a popular advent activity across Scandinavia, and an excellent way of spending some time with the children. Assemble the house for them then let them loose with icing and sweets to decorate. Get nice and creative with this basic set and keep yourself occupied for hours while the snow falls outside (or you can pretend the bit about the snow).
Here’s how to assemble the house: melt some sugar in a thick-bottomed saucepan. Take care, the sugar will be super hot. Best to do this without children near. Use the sugar as a glue to stick the sides of the house together. Leave to dry for a few minutes until the caramel has hardened.
To make the icing: Put 300g of icing sugar in a big bowl and mix with one egg white and a small squeeze of lemon juice. Add the thick mixture to a piping bag, cut a hole in the tip of the bag and decorate your house. Finish off with sweeties or other decorations.
