If only we could make Gingerbread houses without all that tiresome baking (it IS rather hot here). And if they were chocolate flavoured, that'd be good. Oh, and miniature.
That's when I suddenly realised that it was time to follow the age-old tradition, in my family since early 2009, of making WAFER HOUSES. We bought cheap wafer biscuits, and royal-icinged them together. I was happy with that, but the team decided they'd look better with smarties on them too. We made a small village and left them to set until after dinner. Then they were eaten.
To be honest, not that delicious - the icing made the crisp wafers not as crisp. But hey.
