For years I've been saying I want to do a gingerbread house. And then I watched a special on the Food Network and got awfully overwhelmed before they even frosted the thing.
I coming to accept that a career or even a talent in pastry making is not in my future.
And then I saw a gingerbread kit for dummies and decided to give it a go.
Here we are. So far the walls are still standing. I take that as a good sign.
It was a lot of fun. Boy helped a little and we enjoyed laughing at each others gingerbread design skills.
I'm afraid I'm the one that jacked up the shingles. Frosting just doesn't like me.
And I remembered I had a packet of faux snow that my parents brought me back from a recent trip to Alaska.
This stuff is so cool. So we added it for a final wintery touch.
I am all about the kits I tell you.
