For a lovely Christmas centrepiece, make a gingerbread house and decorate it with the kids! For a step by step, you can watch the Allrecipes Gingerbread House Video.
This gingerbread recipe was perfect for assembling a house. I watched the video first and it was really helpful with great tips and good ideas of how to decorate it. Will do this every year! Loved it. - 11 Jan 2016 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

I love this recipe. Very pleased with the end result. A few weeks ago I made gingerbread 'people' to try the recipe before making my Christmas Gingerbread House. I added extra ginger as we like a stronger flavour. I found the recipe quantity is just right for the panels of the house. The template is great. I was nervous about making my panels too flimsy so I just cut out a door and did not bother with the cut out windows. Three wall panels were assembled then let the icing dry thoroughly (they were propped up with an assortment of mugs etc whilst drying) Then the last panel was added and again left to dry. The roof panels were the trickiest parts to add but again they were propped up with an assortment of items found in the kitchen :0) It is the first time I have tried to make a Gingerbread House so it's not perfect to look at, but we are happy with it. - 23 Dec 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
