Making Gingerbread Houses
I’ve made a gingerbread house at Christmas for as long as I can remember. It’s one of those traditions that I never want to give up on. It just fels like Christmas. Creamie made hers last weekend at my mom’s house, and you’ve never seen a happier little girl. I mean, a whole table covered with candy, all at her decorating (and snacking) disposal? What kid wouldn’t be happy!
I was in charge of the frosting, but she was in charge of picking out candy and telling me where to put it. Oh, and she needed to do some tasting too. I’m pretty sure that’s the most important part.
She lost interest with one roof section left to do, so I helped her out a little bit. Just a little.
She was so proud of her little house, and she wanted nothing more than to eat it immediately. Particularly the door. I think that will be the first part to be consumed.
I’m finishing up the tutorial tonight, and I’ll post pics of my house and the recipe and template tomorrow. Happy Wednesday!
