Gingerbread House

On Sunday afternoon I participated in a small get together at the clubhouse to assemble and decorate Gingerbread houses.This is the first time I have ever done a gingerbread house. For many of us this was a first , too.
Did cheat , bought a pre baked kit.Mine came from Bulk Barn , others got theirs at Costco or Walmart . Some had gables and large Christmas trees .
Assembling house and using soup cans to help hold up walls.
The royal icing was a package too, just add water and beat.
Betty and Ben
Al and his first attempt.
Rosemarie, Riny and Diane

My house half way done.

Our leader Gale's house.
Here we all are showing off our houses. We had a lot of fun.Used licorice whips to outline doors and windows. Used a variety of candies decorate , loved the little chocolate rocks I found to make pathway and edge side of tray.
My Finished product!

Do you make gingerbread houses?

Do you notice the lovely Bright apron I am wearing ?
That is a gift from my daughter Rosanne and while decorating my house
saved me from getting the icing all over myself.
