I have a confession. I’ve never made a gingerbread house in my life. I’ve never even done one of those kits or did the kids’ method of using graham crackers for the walls. I have made gingerbread men, though. How much harder could this be, right?
And to be honest, the actual making of the house pieces was totally easy. (Minus my disasterous attempt to use the prepackaged sugar cookie dough for my first attempt…) I followed the recipe on the Haunted House Cookie Cuter Set to the letter. Perfect gingerbread! I was optomistic my house was going to be a success!
Except…I forgot. I can’t pipe to save my life. The house went together like a breeze thanks to my cardboard form. I used royal icing to glue the gingerbread to the cardboard to support everything as I went along. (Still totally edible!)
Then it was time to decorate. And well…I wish we all had time for you to see attempt number three or four after my piping skills had a little more refinement. (I swear, one day I’ll break down and take a class…)
In “you can’t mess these up treats” I also used the Sweet Creations by Good Cook cupcake liners to make spooky Butterfinger Brownie Bites. (Recipe is coming tomorrow!)
