350g plain flour
1 tea spoon bicarbonate of soda
1 1/2 ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
150g light brown sugar
4 tbsp golden syrup (corn syrup)
half an grated orange zest
first pre-heat oven at 180c, then sift flour, ginger, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda in to a bowl and put to one side,
then in a pan on a medium heat add sugar, butter and syrup, and melt together gently.

then cover the area you are working on with flour and roll out
take a sharp knife and cut out the house shape.
i didn't use a pattern for this i just cut each piece at a time and measured it against each part to form the house. to make the trees i cut triangle shapes then cut small triangles out of the sides, i then cut a circle for the base, i put the pieces on some baking paper and baked for 7 minutes.
once cooled i used icing to glue the house together. i then covered the base with icing and stuck the house on and pushed the trees into the icing to keep then standing up right, i used some icing sugar and sprinkled over the whole thing.
then i put it inside a jar as its packaging
