Tim Tam Colleseum



Whooooop dere it is...

After eating the gingerbread house I built for KK's xmas party, Linda challenged me to build her a gingerbread colleseum for her and billy's roman theme house warming party. We decided that a Tim Tam Colleseum would be much cooler and tastier, and so after two trials and lots of eating of tim tams, this is the final product.

The damage:
Tim Tams = 100+
Gaiety biscuits = 100+
Chocolate Royal Icing = 2 bags
Egg Whites = half a dozen
Chicos = one bag
No Frills Jelly Babies = 2 bags
Tina Wafers = 2 packets
Home Brand chocolate/strawberry/vanilla wafers= 2 packets each
Labour = 2 nights of building and setting
Time it took to eat and demolish = not very long....

It wasn't until we were at the party that Billy realised that one of the guests actually works for Arnotts (who make all the biscuits we used) and probably could have provided them for free. Ah wells....
