Traditional Scandinavian Gingerbread House Inspiration

by Scandinavian mum

Baking a Gingerbread House is a December tradition in the Little Scandinavian household. We would gather the family around 2 weeks before Christmas, for a baking and decorating session. The finished result will then be on display in the Kitchen throughout the festive period before brutally ending it’s days 3rd day of Christmas by being smashed (yes, with a hammer) into pieces by Dad and then eaten by the children. A fun tradition, that the children very much look forward to.

Here’s a bit of inspiration on Scandinavian style Gingerbread Houses

  5. ScandinavianMum says:

    Me too. Not sure my result will be posted on the bog, unless theScandiavianDad assists. I’m far from a domestic goddess and end up having to show other peoples work. ;)

  6. ScandinavianMum says:

    Dear Flora. That looks really inviting! Like the witches house in Hansel and Gretel! Yum!

  7. ScandinavianMum says:

    Me too! I will have a go at the mug version! Can’t wait to impress my friends with my baking (for once… )!
