Prior to Christmas I make chocolate houses as gifts. They contain 1kg of chocolate and are more difficult to make in times of high humidity.

This year the boards I used were slightly smaller than in previous years and trickier to ensure all the pieces fitted without going over the edge. I tore pieces of tissue the lengths of the sides and front/back and placed them strategically to ensure suitable placement. They were great guides for placing the pieces. However, this method does not ensure the adjoining sides are perpendicular.

It turned out that there was little or no difference in having the sides outside or inside the front/back. The dimensions were similar either way.
