Sweet times

Well, we've never done a gingerbread house before this year...and now that we've done one I'm not sure we will again, LOL!

Actually I had purchased one of the Wilton's pre-baked kits at Michael's the week before Christmas, but something kept sneaking up on us and we never got around to making it.

We finally got the box out 2 weeks ago and mixed up the packaged royal meringue icing mixture. I think I made it a little too loose, because it just didn't harden up very quickly. No matter, our window frames were a little saggy, and the icicles on the eaves a little longer than expected, but the kids had a blast!

Here's a look at the final, "snowy" outcome.


  1. Beautiful gingerbread house! Looks yummy! :)

  2. That looks like fun! We made a gingerbread house 2 years ago! LOL! It always looks so easy on TV! I thought world war 3 was going to break out amongst the kids...maybe when they are older...

  3. We do at least one of these kits every year. It has become easier over time!

  4. Now this is what I call a fun time. It turned out perfectly, the kids look happy:)
    Hubby and my girls make a kitkat house every year. The girls are 21 19 and 15. Never to old to make a sugar house :)


Hi! I'd love to hear from you, so...leave me a message!
