This year's photo started as a suggestion from Lynn - but where would we get a Gingerbread House from? A trawl of the internet came up with a "Dessert Blog" by Anita, in Sydney, Australia who gives step by step instruction on how to make one - and she was kind enough not only to let me use her photo, but also sent me a high definition version to work with.

Lynn and Paul have now left Germany and are living in Northwood, an 18 minute drive away, and Jill has moved across London to East Dulwich.

For the Gingerbread House recipe (and others) have a look at Anitia's home page and then under Recipes ... http://www.leaveroomfordessert.com
