Gingerbread house punch

May 02 2022 Published by under Uncategorized

When making gingerbread one uses punches to create the shapes.

I suggest making 3 in the shape of parts for a small house. One for the roof, one for each side and one for the remaining two sides. With 3 punches one has a ginger bread house half a decimeter high. Glue it together with sugar paste.

This means every kid around the table can make his/her own house and not have to share/squabble over which decoration should go where.

Automatic power cut off for stove

Jan 24 2012 Published by under Uncategorized

I know this already exists for elderly people and people with bad memory: a timer for the stove.

I think it is a good idea for every household.  Just press a button at the wall and the stove is powered for 1, 2 or 4 hours; should be enough for most cooking.

Never be afraid of having forgotten the stove turned on again.

The power cut off can (of course) be overriden when need arises.
