Last night I mentioned a gingerbread hack and I promised I’d update with all the delicious details. Here is my gingerbread hack follow-up! I thought I’d post quickly while my little poppies recover from their sugar highs with the help of a Rudolph-themed dinner picnic.
Edited to add: I’ve had a lot of folks message me about what happens after I hot glue the houses. Oops! I forgot to tell you all that part. From that point on, it’s gingerbread as normal. We use tubs of frosting and candy and then the kiddos are free to pick off candy as treats as the weeks go on. No hot glue is consumed, I swear!
So here is our before shot, from last night:
And these are the after shots:
Close up of Schizz’s house:
And, to illustrate that some boys never grow up:
Here’s a close-up of mine, made for my fairy obsessed kiddos:
Here’s Leo’s Battle House, complete with cannons and a character meeting its icy demise:
Here is my sweet T’s Christmas Party House. There is quite a crowd gathered on the front lawn!
And last, but certainly not least, here is Seuss’ fantastical Spooky Ghost house. Really, to truly understand this house you needed to be sitting beside him as he morphed into various characters and narrated the house’s tale. I was fortunate to be sitting beside him and enjoying the performance.
Nothing like gingerbread construction while under construction!
I hope your weekend was equally delicious!
The secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
