I made Gingerbread Houses for the first time on Saturday. And by “made”, I mean “assembled” and “decorated”.
There are instructions on how to make each one. And how to use the icing packet.
One of the instructions is “snip the tip”.
I’m not making this up.
You will start to be discouraged straight away.
This is how the gingerbread village arrives. You’re supposed to snap along the lines. This is where the discouragement begins, because reality sinks in as you realise the entire village will crumble and your dreams will be dashed before they begin.
Then, your hopes will be raised by the fact that the snapping along the lines worked!
But here come the real tips:
Choose the simplest one and volunteer to go first. Everyone will be mightily impressed by your bravery and skills.
Then you will stop taking this seriously (if you even did to begin with) by turning your gingerbread house into a fortress.
Icing can be called: sauce and/or glue.
I am so upset I didn’t see Eden’s post about smashing Gingerbread Houses before I made this. I would have recorded it and posted it here. So you’ll just have to imagine it.
Do you make Gingerbread Houses? Do you demolish them?
What’s your best tip for making or decorating gingerbread houses?
