Have you made your gingerbread house yet? Or have you taken a class this season to learn how? We’d like to see your pictures! (see below)
And if you’re out there baking your own gingerbread, chance are you’ll end up with a little extra dough. Here’s an idea for that leftover dough, inspired by Pinterest.
After baking a class set of houses yesterday, I had one tennis-sized ball of gingerbread left. My kids and I free-handed a few tiny gingerbread pieces and constructed miniature houses, the perfect accompaniment for a mug of warm cocoa. A generous dollop of icing on top and a sprinkling of crushed candy canes and the two-bite-sized treats were ready.
Show us your gingerbread houses!
We invite you to post a photo of your house on our Facebook page by Dec. 19. Add a note to your post to give us a little information about your house and design. If you’re submitting a photo of your child’s gingerbread house, let us know your child’s name and age.
If you aren’t on Facebook but would still like to share a photo of your house, email your photo to Jenny.
Our dining team will choose our favorites and share them on the Food and More blog on Dec. 21. Anyone who submits a photo will be entered into a drawing for a prize.
