Every year for quite a few now my daughter makes gingerbread houses as part of her business.
I can't bear to eat these amazing pieces of art and so they sit atop my glass cupboard for me to see and love.
Yes they are gingerbread...but the amount of work and art involved makes them so much more than something to eat.
You might be able to see this year's model in Fortnum and Mason in London.....if you are quick!
This Dutch inspired one is my favourite at the moment.
