Gingerbread House

Im a sucker for gingerbread house's. I love to make them and really enjoy getting to have time to be creative.
My fave are the little kits you can get at Michael's craft store. They come with everything you need. All the cookie pieces are pre-cooked so all I have to do is put it together. Well we hit Michael's about a week ago and found some of the kits for Halloween. Now I know Halloween is still a month and half away but it was still fun to do. Im still learning how to work with Royal frosting, and finally learned I have to let each part dry before I move on.
Anyways here are a few pics of the house I just did. Im going to let the kids eat this one tonight. Then I will make another one closer to Halloween that we will keep as a decoration.

Cant wait for Christmas!!

Holy cow! I've never heard of Halloween gingerbread houses :) Yours looks amazing, though. Royal icing is so pretty . . . too bad it's icky to eat!

I love your gingerbread house. You're nicer than me. After all the work that goes into making one I don't let anyone eat them.:) Especially since I let it sit out for the whole month of December.

That ginger bread house rocks! Eric loves to make them too. He just reminded me that Christmas is around the corner and he needs to get a kit.
