WARNING: making a gingerbread house may sound like fun. IT IS NOT.
My beau somehow talked me into making a gingerbread house with him — although, he still claims it was MY idea. We spent the better part of last Sunday making this monstrosity from baking to assembling, to frosting.
Did I mention he’s an engineer and I’m a designer? So this house was going to be a really cool house. Or so the plans laid it out that way.
He didn’t want just a plain house — it had to have an addition. I also wanted to go gung ho and do all sorts of cool piping, but that didn’t happen as I was exhausted by the time we got the damn thing to hold together.
Also — if you bake things, they change form. Something I didn’t think about going into this.
Regardless, here is our house. And I’ve got a template for the pieces here for you for FREE. If you dare.
The side of the house refused to stay put. It collapsed 3-4 times before I finally just put a bunch of empty bottles around it to hold it up.
And here is the side. Kind of cute, but frustrating!
