This Old Gingerbread House

1 Dec , 2006  

It’s that time of year again people! Time for gum drop walkways, candy cane fences, and cinnamon graham shingles.

Gingerbread Dog House

While my first effort with gingerbread house building last year didn’t go exactly as planned, it certainly was memorable and resulted in one extremely large edible dog house (finally consumed amongst a whirlwind orgy of ravenous New Year’s Eve partiers). The poor marshmallow poodles never knew what hit them.

In celebration of holiday sugar-highs I’ve decided to showcase a series of posts on Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about creating your own gingerbread homes. From plans and patterns to decorating ideas, and maybe even a special gingerbread trick or two.

    Just too, too cool. I never would have thought of the cinnamon graham (chex!) shingles, so don’t come running to me for ideas.

    Well I’m trying to come up with an easier project than the dog house which ended up taking me three days to make! The graham shingles are uber cool but they take awhile since you have to layer them all and then let them dry. I made the mistake of doing that before putting the roof on the house. Ahhh, live and learn. LOL
