We all enjoyed decorating a gingerbread house the other night. We do one every year. And yes, it was a Wilton kit. Thats the only way! Making it from scratch just causes stress and frustration as the rooftop always seems to implode and the sides always fall down:) So, the Wilton kit is the way to go for us. Decorating is the really fun part anyways I say. Joey did the icing on the roof. I did the icing for the windows and front door. The girls did all of the candy and we let them eat some too. You can't make a gingerbread house without eating some of the candy!
Candy placement is key
Aubrey and Ella loved every minute of itI LOVE this picture. Cali's smile is so adorable with her little eyebrows raised. Thats our happy baby!
Finished product. I sifted powdered sugar on top for the "snow" effect. The kids thought that was cool. My mom always did that. Good job everyone! This is our prettiest house yet!
