Annas Pepparkakshus: Build-it yourself Gingerbread house. Make a traditional Christmas gingerbread house with this fun building set. We do not recommend ordering Annas Pepparkakshus for delivery. The gingerbread house is very fragile and therefore might break during delivery.
The foundations for Annas Pepparkakor were laid by the sisters Emma and Anna Karlsson back in 1929 in their home bakery on Artillerigatan in Stockholm. Back then, they baked both ginger thins, or “Pepparkakor” in Swedish and other small cakes. The thins became very popular and the bakery expanded rapidly. The bakery moved to Rödabergsgatan/Torsgatan and in 1945, the actual production of Annas Pepparkakor was moved to larger premises in Johanneshov.
You can get nice and creative with this 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 assmeble the house: melt some sugar in a thick-bottomed saucepan. Take care, the sugar will be super hot. Use the sugar as a glue to stick the sides of the house together. Leave to dry for a few minutes.
To make the icing: 300g of icing sugar 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 of other decorations.
Store in a sealed container, in a cool, dry place.
