A tradition born out of boredom in 2006, every christmas Ian and his extended family across the globe try and build an overly-complicated gingerbread structure. They have developed tea mug scaffolding, extra-strong royal icing, boiled sweet stained glass windows and gingerbread contained jello.

This began as a funny Christmas project in 2006 with family and turned into an annual tradition. The aim is to have fun and create something challenging whilst at the same time involving extended family around the globe.

Updates after Christmas.
