I know this is late, but I wanted to post my gingerbread house that I did this year. It is one of my favorites that I have done, I love making these we always get together at my mom's the friday after Thanksgiving (black friday) to make them. My mom makes all the icing and keeps us all going throughout the day. I got a couple of new ideas this year thanks to pinterest, the smarties shingles and the chocolate door. A couple of days before we make these, me and Mindy and Becky all got together and made the wreaths (we used the bottom of a red solo cup), trees (made from a sugar cone) and the bushes (made from snickers and gumdrops). It takes me all day, but I love it, so much fun for me. I started at about 10 am, and finished around 4 pm.
