Doing a gingerbread house is not the newest idea of course, but I am doing it every year on christmas with great fun. This year I had the (supposed to be!) glorious idea of baking a complete gingerbread village with many of tiny houses and deers and sweets around, without thinking how much efforts and time-consuming that would be.
I had the idea of a village quite some weeks in my head already and was so eager of doing it. Well, no sooner said than done, I prepared double amount of gingerbread dough wednesday after work and stayed up until midnight, because I wanted the village to be finished before saturday eve, when I had some friends over for christmas dinner.
