Gingerbread architecture at The Sweet Spot

Some days ago, at The Sweet Spot pastry lab, where all the magic happens, several bloggers got together to take their chances with haute patisserie. Just to get an idea, here's Claire's post at KOOLFly (yeah, my pics) and Stella's post at Shopping Therapy.

This is Zoe Vidali, the youngest of the mother-daughter duo behind the pastry shop:

She's making the most basic house design, one that you can also make at home with this recipe here, found at The Sweet Spot blog (in greek only I'm afraid).

Just imagine what an architect/pastry maker could make... Blows my mind!

Extra tip: If you're not big on the architecture from pastry thing, you can try a ready-made ixe cream cone and turn it into a Christmas tree, just with some green coloured royal icing and sprinkles.

Since gingerbread house making was a little out of our league, so we started off by decorating our own Christmas trees...

Well, you know me. If I decide to make something, I'm gonna make it good!

You can friend The Sweet Spot on FB to keep all these sweet things popping up on your stream or find them IRL, at Andrea Papandreou 39, Halandri.
