Gingerbread House by claremanson Gingerbread House by claremanson
This is my family and I's first time decorating a gingerbread house so please be nice!

My family are not big on gingerbread cookies and I am super busy with Christmas coming up to attempt making a house from scratch so we decided to buy a kit.  I am normally very against box mixes and kits but, like I said I am super busy and the kids are much more into the decorating side of things than the baking when it comes to cookies so it really wasn't worth doing.

I did all the piping for the icing, some of the sweets on the front of the house, the path and coconut snow ground. My husband decorated one side of the roof, he also attempted to pipe some of the icing after laughing at how bad I was at it, he was even worse!!!! The kids stuck on the rest of the decorations.

I thought the house might stay intact for at least a day or two but no, a few hours later the poor house was destroyed and eaten!

If you are making a Gingerbread House or any other Christmas treats this year, check out my Christmas Baking Contest :) claremanson.deviantart.com/jou…

I had the same kit! XD
It looks like you've added your own lollies in addition to the ones provided in the kit.
