Ta da! We made our first gingerbread house, ever! Well, in all honesty, we didn’t really “make” the gingerbread house because that implies that I baked, which in this case, I didn’t. Instead, I paid…for a really great kit at Costco. It came with everything. Pre-baked, pre-cut gingerbread, frosting, and “over 1 pound of candy”!
Yeah, the kids are sky high on sugar right now.
But it was lots of fun. The kids were able to contribute a lot (of eating and decorating), and I didn’t stress out over burnt or broken gingerbread. It was a major success!
