It’s been a long time since I last made/decorated a Gingerbread house.

Gingerbread House

This time I bought a Gingerbread House kit to save me some time fooling around with a template, and measuring and marking the doors, and windows myself. As it turned out this particular kit didn’t have the door or windows stamped on the Gingerbread so I ended up having to do that anyway. It also didn’t have enough icing. Next time I’ll make my own Royal Icing. Piping, icing, and working with fondant is challenging. I need a lot more practice, but it was fun watching the transformation from plain Gingerbread to the finished house, and I think my Gingerbread Christmas Trees look pretty good with the house, and next year I’ll make a couple taller trees too.

  3. That’s beautiful. We never made the attempt in our house.

    • Not even the Graham Cracker Milk Carton ones when Faith was little? That’s how I started. 🙂

      • No, we were holiday shaped sugar cookies. Faith was in charge of decorating.
