|The Family Room Want to know the best place to buy baby clothing or toys, are diapers available in Thaliand? What about the best hospitals, the pitfalls of hiring a nanny or helper. How to keep teenagers amused in Bangkok, can I hire a carseat when I travel? Which children's medications are available?|

Easy Xmas Gingerbread Houses
I'm gonna make a couple of houses for the oldies homes. Thought, why bother with the baking -- just get cookies and improvise! Just need to make the frosting for the "glue", get some smarties, candy, some grated choccie swirls (well, tough for some of this stuff in the tropics), but hey, build away. (Does anyone eat this stuff, anyway?)
Here's a frost (glue) dressing and other hints. Probably really fun to build with the kids. Leave a wall open to put fairy lights inside and stuff.
graham crackers (whatever; anything sweet and square is OK)
Frosting for glue (recipe below)
Assorted small candies for decorating
Pastry bag and tip or Ziploc bag and scissors
1/2 pound confectioner's sugar
3 tbs. butter/margarine
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 - 2 tbs. Milk
This here will be what Ant will be trying to get his twins to create (OK, it's Brit but whatever) :
Oh, this looks like a boobie roof:

Nice idea, Jettie. Pics of your finished articles, please?
If I tried to build one with littl'un, I think it'd turn out to be a gingerbread mud hut, though...
