To make the gingerbread, mix together the flour, ginger, soda and put aside. Next, melt together the butter, golden syrup and brown sugar together in a large saucepan. When ready, stir in the flour mixture and mix till you have a soft dough. To roll out the gingerbread you will need to place a sheet of baking paper onto your work surface. This will help to stop the gingerbread from sticking. Dust with a little flour and roll out the gingerbread in small pieces. Cut out the sides of your gingerbread using a cutter or template and place onto lined baking sheets. Bake in the ovenĀ  at 160`c for 20 minutes, then carefully flip the gingerbread over and cook on the other side for another 5-10 minutes to dry out. When ready, remove from the oven and allow to cool down completely before putting the house together with royal icing and decorating.
