An Australian Christmas is not conducive to sipping hot chocolate by an open fire and enjoying a warming roast but July’s cooler weather is far more suitable and there a few Christmas in July events taking advantage of it. Making a gingerbread house is my Christmas tradition so I offered to make one for a Christmas in July this year.

I’d love to improve my piping skills so I could decorate a house with a little more finesse but until then lollies/candy can cover up what my skills are lacking.
