    Anyone make these?

    Are they easy?

    I'm a novice baker :haha:

    Of anyone would like to share a recipe that would be great!

    Or.. Do you think it's better to buy on flat packed from somewhere like M&S (if they sell them) and just erect it without any baking?

    Discuss....

    Ive never made one before but at the moment am subscribed to bake and delicious, their festive brochure is out soon which includes the silicone mould to make a gingerbread house so am going to have a try :thumbup:

    Not much help but they do sell their issues in shops. :)
