Last weekend, we went and saw a gingerbread house building demonstration. The chef's house was amazing.
So we incorporated some of her ideas into our house this year. Although, I didn't back the gingerbread with chocolate, much to my family's dismay.
The trick is to let the walls dry for 24 hours before adding the roof pieces.
Then the fun part: the decorating. The kids took pastry bags and candies and made a project of it this afternoon.
Here's the final product. Tomorrow, we get to eat it!
