Teeny Tiny Gingerbread Houses

The blogger at Cake Time made these adorably tiny gingerbread houses for a competition last week. I hope she won! The recipe is in Polish, but you can translate it into English at the top of the page. That will not help American bakers figure out how much 120 grams of caster sugar is in measuring cups.

I learned how difficult it is when we had a German exchange student who wanted to cook -using a recipe in German!

We went shopping, and he (a 16-year-old boy) needed an ingredient I'd never heard of. He described it as well as a teenage boy who doesn't cook much would, and his translation widget called it "Anorexia." I wasn't about to ask the Kroger staff for anorexia, but figured that nonfat yogurt was as close as we'd get. It worked, but I later found it was a kind of soft cheese only sold in Europe and parts of Canada. Cottage cheese would have worked better.

And he was stunned that I didn't have a kitchen scale. We did a lot of math, and the cake turned out fine.

Difficult to convert since a cup measures volume while grams are units of mass. Would a cup of feathers really weigh the same as a cup of lead? And if you're using either to bake gingerbread you're probably not going to get great results :o)

Pretty simple. 120 grams is a little less than half a cup, I believe, by about 5 grams.
You could probably google that pretty quickly, too.
