This year we took on the great gingerbread house project of 2012.
I bought a gingerbread house kit on sale at Wegmans. When I brought it home, Aaron took one look and said "Nuh-Uh". Next thing I know he is sketching out plans for a gingerbread replica of our house and the pre-made gingerbread house became the garage.
After cutting out the pieces by hand, baking them and assembling the house with frosting... we made sugar glass windows so Aaron could put a light inside the house.
Here is the finished house next to a photo of our house. What do you think? Pretty close right?
People have asked if we are going to eat it. Probably not. I suggested having a party and busting it up with bats like I saw on a commercial last year and Aaron almost passed out. I think we are shellacing this baby and putting it in our new deep freezer for next year.
