Gingerbread house.

Gingerbread houses are not a very common tradition in Greece. Yet you start to see them in pastry shops all over the city.
I always wanted to make my own. This year I thought I should try it.
Unfortunately I do not have much time, so I ended up buying a prebaked house from IKEA and all I did was make the Christmas tree.

I glued the house parts together with caramel. For the fence I used small pretzels and for the tree I baked gingerbread stars and used plain confectioner's sugar frosting, which dries to very hard.
Then I dusted everything with sugar to make it snowy.

If I find the time, I will make more decorations!
