Moomin gingerbread house!

Tada! Here is finally our little family project: a Moomin gingerbread house! We found the template here and we used some of our normal gingerbread cookie dough. We had great fun doing the Moomin house and next year we’ll try something more difficult :-)

Fredrik is applying “snow” on the moomin house roof.

    J’adore ce petit personnage, j’ai lu les romans de cette auteure lorsque j’étais enfant, et cela m’avait tellemnt plus que j’avais baptisé ma mère Moumine ! Ta réalisation est splendide !

    Excellent ! Beautiful ! I love it !
    J’ai déjà fait ta recette et les gabarits des personnages pour tenter de les réaliser… mais ce que tu fais ici est superbe, j’adore !
    Comme Lilizen, je dis “splendide” !

    I so do not believe you, it looks way difficult. :) Now I’m really scared about our marzipan-shaping workshop :)

    You’ve inspired me! I make a gingerbread house every year, but I’m definitely up for trying something new this year!

    Margot: Ale napewno bardzo ladne chatki!

    Milie: Yes, you’re right about that :-) Thanks

    Sylvie: Merci beaucoup!!

    Anne: Then you’ll be very disapointed, I promise :-) It’s one thing assembling a house and another thing making tiny details and figures with marzipan. You’ll laugh when you’ll see my attempts trying to create little marzipan santas and pigs :-)

    Sinistra: Dzieki!!!

    Brilynn: Great! Don’t forget to blog about it!!

    Viktoria: Thanks! Nu vet du med andra ord vad ni skall göra till helgen, antar jag? :-)

    You know Moomins used to scare me when I was a child? Bringing those memories back is just cruel ; )

    Gerda: I’ve only seen the cutters once and that was when I bought them. I so regret that I didn’t buy more as a lot of people ask me about them.

    Scott: *lol* How could they possibly scare you? They are so cute! :-)

    I’ve only seen the cookie cutters once, and that was last year in a small shop in Gothenburg.

    this is probably the coolest gingerbread house i have ever seen. i have just moved to japan and noticed the moomins are the height of fashion here. being swedish, i have greatly enjoyed moominvalley in my childhood… and recently i’ve been wanting to make gingerbread characters. wow, you’ve just captured all these things in one. i am in awe.

    I LOVE this house!! I bought the kit to make it, but what did you use to make the tiles on the roof? Is it almonds?
    Thanks!

    Teresa :)
