gingerbread house

This is my very first gingerbread house to ever make although I was quite fond of sugar cube castle making when I was young. I got to make this house with my friends Emily, Sarah and Rachel and Emily's parents for her birthday several years ago. Her parents made these yummy houses and the extremely yummy icing (I could have eaten that stuff all night!) to put them together. We had lots of fun.

Tonight I'm making graham cracker houses with a group of girls from my church. Anybody have any great tips or ideas for me to use on mine?

When you make a gingerbread house do you eat it?

so fun! can't wait to see photos.

I think I made one gingerbread house way back growing up -- or maybe that was Heather. Can't remember. I don't think we ate it.

That looks good. I love the ice cream cone tree! Mom and I made our first gingerbread house last year (from a kit), and we did not eat it. I don't think it was meant to be eaten and wouldn't have tasted very good. Although, we did eat some of the candy. After all the work, we hated to throw it away, so Mom kept it in a closet for this year. She said that she is throwing it away after Christmas, but if it still looks good, she may keep it another year. :o)

Hey, maybe that needs to be a new family tradition as the kids get older. Can you imagine doing it this year? Disaster waiting to happen!!!
