Halloween Ginger Bread HouseIt is the first Halloween celebration for my little girl and I decided to bake something special for her: an halloween gingerbread house

selection 3

I filled the inside of the house with candies and marshmallow. Of course she will not be able to taste it as she is only 7 months old but anyway I thought it could be nice to do a nice gingerbread house.


I decorated the house with licorice, candy floss, jelly beans and soft candies.


I would love to write more about it but after spending 3 hours in the kitchen and writing the recipe for the blog it is almost time to pick her from the childcare.Happy Halloween 2013 !
