Gingerbread House

It snowed all day at my house today........

So, I thought this was the perfect time to try out the gingerbread house kit that I found while shopping.

I really enjoy making gingerbread houses, or at least I thought I did.......When the thought of making the gingerbread dough, baking it, getting it out of the molds in one piece, putting it together, and waiting patiently for it to dry so I could finally decorate it came to mind, I was dreading it. Then I realized I only really enjoy decorating them! When I happened upon this kit at the store, it was a no brainer! For ten dollars you get, the gingerbread house (already assembled!!!) icing, candy to decorate, instructions with ideas and the basic tools needed to decorate it. What a steal!!

Samantha was more than willing to sit with me while I decorated my little house and help me eat my mistakes.

She was also enjoying some animal crackers while I worked on the house, so I stole one of her animal crackers that might possibly pass for a deer.......

Everything I used to decorate my house came with the kit, except the "deer" and the white sanding sugar I used for the walkway up to the front door.

Happy Decorating!!
