This year, I decided to do something I’ve never done before – build a gingerbread house. Being absolutely terrible at baking, I decided to buy a gingerbread house kit (it tastes awful, maybe I should’ve just baked!) I picked this one up from Toys R Us on a whim, as it looked quite cute. They also had a gingerbread train and a gingerbread town but I thought the traditional gingerbread house would do me fine for my first attempt. The kit came with all I needed to create a childish looking masterpiece fit for a gingerbread man and his snowman and I kind of liked how it turned out… it’s a nice little festive addition to our kitchen counter!
Perhaps next year, if I win the lottery, I might have a try at building this gingerbread house. (How cool is that?) Or maybe bake my own, at least.
Have you ever built a gingerbread house? What do you think of my attempt?
