I found a few more of our gingerbread houses that I wanted to share.
California Dream Cottage
This first one is more of a California look with the flower decorations, the lacy curtains from crackers and the GREEN grass. those crispy butter roof tiles were a bit of a challenge to apply without breaking.
CAUGHT IN A BLIZZARD
I love this one we had a storm blow in and had placed this house outside to get a picture in the snow. We left it for a few hours and the sleet and wind made for a beautiful transformation, this was in Idaho. It also reminds me a of driving through snowdrifts and a narrow road that was kindly plowed out just to get me to the plane on time. The bleeding colors reminded me of this experiment.
The Whole Village
This village with trains and sleighs is from about 13 years ago. We spent hours working on these. Notice that some of the windows are cut out Dremel tool for the win! I was serious when I said that Candy Houses were a long standing tradition on black Friday.
This house was fun to make with a candy melts mold to make the wreath and doors Even the picket fence. I love the snowdrift on the roof and the snowman and trees.
I am glad to have this tradition to look back on over the years. Remembering how much fun and thought when into making each one.
SNOW MUCH FUN
NO for the big QUESTION—- DO you eat your candy houses?
I just can not even think of doing it but I know many people do.
