we made this wonderfully fast gingerbread house thanks to the costco kit. it was the perfect amount of time. about 45 min. from start to finish. the kids really enjoyed themselves!!
it was a GREAT night!!
i will never forget my mom's houses! homemade. she would make a village.
victorian cookie cutters for the windows
gingerbread mom, dad, girl, boy cookie cutters
melted sugar for the seams (still remember the smell... ah)
we had to find just the right decorations!
fruit stripes gum - shutters
spearmint leaves - bushes
necco circles - shingles
crushed life savers (melted)- stained glass windows
red hots- lights
candy canes- pillars
i can still see her filling the paper with icing and making each individual icicle. she wore this christmas apron she made. i had a matching one.
she knew how to create the magic.
