Before you begin, print out the pattern for the houses.
- Preheat the oven to 180* C (350*F) Fan.
- Cream the butter and sugar, in a mixer, until light and fluffy!
- Combine the flour with the remaining dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
- In the meantime, add the eggs, one at a time, to the mixer. When completely combined, add the honey.
- Now add the flour mixture to the mixer. Mix just until everything is combined, not for too long. Divide into 4 parts and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least one hour or mixture becomes firm.
- Roll out the dough using more flour, in between two sheets of parchment paper. Make a sheet of dough about 3-4 cm thick. Cut out the shapes by using the pattern for the houses. Transfer the pieces to baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
- Stick the pieces together with Royal Icing, and use a cutting board or wooden base to help you. Quite a generous amount of icing will be needed for the pieces to stick together properly. Allow to dry before decorating.
- Put some royal icing in a piping bag to decorate the little house. You can embellish it further by using colored candy, jelly beans, marshmallows and pieces of dark and light chocolate, etc.
