So I've started off my Christmas cookie bake-a-thon with building two Gingerbread houses! Some things I have learned from making them from scratch are: -Make a cardboard blueprint of your house first. -Let the bread harden/stale so it's less likely to break during construction. -Use a nice stiff frosting! Mine are not finished yet, so I will post photos later. But, if anyone has pictures from this year or whenever, I'd love to see them!
