In da house

on December 22, 2010

Would you believe that I have never decorated a gingerbread house? That that I can remember anyway! Emily is at a great age to do this so we decorated one together this year. I am not cool enough to make my own pieces so I bought a kit at Michael’s. I put the base together while she played with playdoh- an even exchange I think. Later that afternoon, the decorating began!

I am really not sure how you are supposed to keep the icing from getting too hard after sitting for several hours in order to let the house set. I *meant* to put a drop or two of water in to soften it up. Meant to but that’s not how much came out. Whoops! The icing was a little runny so the candy had a hard time sticking. I was so mad at myself. Emily didn’t care though. She didn’t notice it one way or the other. She really enjoyed eating candy while putting it on the house.

For this being our first attempt at a gingerbread house, I think it turned out pretty cute. I think Zachary can get into some of the action next year. It’ll be great!
