Gingerbread Disaster (Potentially)

17 Dec

I’m currently trying my hand at the good old-fashioned gingerbread house!  I haven’t  made one of these in years, so I thought I would reward my end-of-the-school-year efforts with the chance to express my creative side for a bit. Of course, I’m not attempting to build it from scratch–that’s a BIG undertaking for a beginning Gingerbread-House-builder 🙂  Instead I grabbed a kit at Sam’s, and I’ve been playing around with it all night.  

I’m happy to report that after a couple of hours, an entire tube of icing, four “OH NO’S!!,” and finally a cry for extra holding hands from my mom, my house has four standing walls and a roof. Admittedly, one wall is pushed in and I had to overlap the roof edges a bit, but its on!  Woohoo!  After one final catastrophe of the whole thing collapsing inward, I’ve decided to give it the night to cement.  It’s currently being held up with chili and icing cans 🙂
