It wouldn’t be Christmas without a gingerbread house workshop so even though Covid has stopped me running a live one for the first time in 18 years I’ll be doing it on zoom instead. The only difference being that you’ll need an adult around to help, which will be good fun for you. Please note the price is PER HOUSE, if you have two children making two houses the price will be £150, if you have two children making one house it will be £75, due to the amount of supervision and input from my end.
There will be three sessions in total over 2 days :
Monday 21 December 10am-12.30pm – making the gingerbread, rolling out, cutting out and sugar paste masterclass, there will also be an in depth instruction session for the adults to go through how to ensure that the gingerbread is cooked and recutting the shapes immediately it comes out of the oven.
Monday 21 December 4-5pm – Creating the structure (for the adults) – I’ll take you through how to mix royal icing to the correct consistency, fill piping bags and how to build the house so it has time to set over night. If we need more time then I can extend this session.
Tuesday 22 December 10am-11.30am – decorating the gingerbread house and more sugar paste.
Optional loan of 1 or 2 small rolling pins for the sugar paste, 2 spacers for helping to roll out the gingerbread, 3 icing bags for royal icing and 3 mini Christmas cookie cutters for shapes and stained glass windows, there is charge of £30 for these, £15 is refundable on return. This is bookable as a separate item.
Once you’re booked and paid I’ll send out the templates for the gingerbread house, recipes, ingredients lists and utensils lists. I have three spare gingerbread house sets and am happy to send these out to the first three people to book, let me know in the comments if you would like one and this will included for an additional £15 deposit to the above. If you would like to purchase your own Squires Kitchen have the one I use in stock
