Gingerbread House

by Wendy Copley on November 26, 2007

Wyatt and I made a gingerbread house the other night. I wanted it to be fun, so instead of going through all of the hassle of making gingerbread dough, rolling it out, baking it and then accidentally breaking it into 3 or 4 pieces, I decided to buy a kit with pre-baked pieces. It came with candy and frosting too so we were all set. It took me a little while to get the consistency of the frosting right, but once I got it right it was a great glue. Wyatt liked putting pieces on the roof, but mostly he just wanted to eat the candy.

In my opinion, gingerbread houses look best when they have a lot of candy on them. Can you tell by looking at the photos? Here is a front view:
