After many years of trial and error, I’ve learned that my talent when it comes to gingerbread construction is definitely in the decor and not the architecture. Making the house from scratch is more difficult and takes more time than I am willing to invest so thank goodness for the store bought shortcut, the Gingerbread House Kit. Pick up one of those babies, alongside with all of your favourite candy and you are set for a gingerbread extravaganza!
As for some real talent, take a look at some of my favourite gingerbread houses from around the internets. (Links below each photo).
