We’ve done gingerbread houses the last couple of years… this year was no exception. Especially since I found a perfect house for Aaron on Black Friday and was tipped off on the perfect house for Averie from a friend’s Facebook posts:
I assembled everything during nap time — it was just easier that way, but once naptime was over — the decorating commenced – and took the better part of an hour!
I have a thing for having lots of choices, so the amount of candy that was available to choose from bordered on ridiculous…
And the final products:
Every year I forget how absolutely MISERABLE premade royal icing tastes. It’s disgusting… if my cookie royal icing tasted like that – I wouldn’t ever bother making them. Blech! Good news is that we don’t eat our houses, they sit on top of the TV looking pretty and then magically disappear one day… so on the upside I don’t have to endure tasting the icky royal icing again!
