We used old-fashioned sweet bags to pack up the decorations and wrapped the gingerbread in cellophane tied with ribbon, then put them all in a hamper to give away as a gift.
Also add a piping bag with a small writing nozzle and (if you like) a flat star-shaped nozzle, plus little jars of icing sugar to make the glue to stick the house together. Write the instructions (above) on a card – or photocopy them and stick to a card – and put in the hamper.
The dough is best baked after an hour of chilling but you can make and chill it up to 24 hours ahead. Grate the dough and knead it together to bring it back to a workable texture.
The baked gingerbread biscuits will keep for 10 days in an airtight container.
