When I was growing up, we made a gingerbread house (or sleigh, or something gingerbread-y) every year… or almost every year anyway. It’s a fun tradition that I have carried on with my children. As they get older, it’s exciting to see the girls put some actual planning into the houses and how they want them to turn out. Believe me, I lived through the years of “let’s just throw all these pieces of candy on the house and think it looks beautiful” all the while, eating the rest of the candy. And they were beautiful, in their own way.
But this year…. we outdid ourselves, and had the mess to prove it!
I may have gone slightly overboard with the candy selection.
Lila chose to make an igloo made of sugar cubes this year, complete with ADORABLE penguins! I used a recipe for a good sticky icing found HERE.
We spent the whole day making gingerbread houses and had so much fun! The girls are already planning what to do for next year!
