Today is exactly two weeks until Christmas, so freaking exciting! Today is the 11th day of my 12 Days of Christmas and while I already talked about hot chocolate (here) I have yet to actually talk about holiday food and one of my favorites has to be gingerbread, not eating it though, but decorating it! I have been making Gingerbread houses with my family since I was very little! I remember buying candy, separating the red and green ones and eating the rest (I mean, yellow, orange, purple and brown are not really holiday colors – yummy)! Usually my brother and I would each get to decorate one side of the roof and our parents would vote on whose was better. Hint: we usually tied. This is one of those houses circa 1995.
We had such a great time decorating this gingerbread house! It may not be the prettiest one I have ever seen but it is made with all of our favorite candy and I am sure it will be delicious. It is much smaller than the one’s I decorated as a child but it might have been even more fun. If I was going to make a massive one I would definitely use these as inspiration, and, of course, they are from Pinterst.
