I have ALWAYS wanted to make a gingerbread house from scratch. You know, where you make your own pattern, roll out the gingerbread, cut it out, bake it, decorate it...
Boy, it is sure harder than it looks! Nevertheless, I, and my fearless son, attempted our first homemade gingerbread house the other night. I must say, I am quite pleased with how it turned out!
We melted candies in the windows, and even put a light inside so it glows! My son had the brilliant idea to cut a hole where the chimney goes so it looks like a fire is burning in the fireplace. He also suggested we put a frosting rope draped from the boat to the dock so it doesn't float away. Doesn't this scene just make you want to go inside and get eaten by a wicked witch? I think it would be worth it!
