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.
