    Gingerbread house

    Advertisements
    The kids and I made a gingerbread house, today!

    Front:


    Back:


    To make it easier I baked the cake last night - and we built the gingerbread house this morning and let it set before we decorated it. We built it on a sheet of foil and then just set the foil/house on the cake and then decorated all of that.
    It's not a traditional Gingerbread house, of course - I made it of graham crackers and had to get creative with how to do the roof and all that - I've never made one before from scratch, I've always used a kit, so it worked out REALLY well, I'm glad that it didn't fall in!

    One batch of royal frosting was MORE than enough to do everything - I fixed the batch and scooped it all into a quart-size ziplock bag and snipped the corner off to apply so none of it dried out (a problem I've had when doing cookies).

    To let the kid's freely decorate I put puddles of royal frosting on plates and piled the candy into bowls - so they dipped and placed their pieces without any problems! They were really good about letting eachother do whatever they wanted. I was worried that they'd fight about it all but they didn't!

    That is awesome. I'd love to take a corner of that and chow down.

    - now I'm using the power of the sweet tooth to get them to help clean the house. If they clean up a bit and eat their dinner they can all have a slice.
