Our Gingerbread House

Here finally is our version of the Gingerbread House. We try to make one each Christmas and in the past couple of years we have had a couple of failures with stability.
This year we used Charlotte's idea of using white chocolate for gluing the house together.
What a GREAT idea. it was so much easier and more stable and of course tastier as well.
Autumn was desperate to make this completely on her own. Sometimes I feel quite obsolete in these creative pursuits.
However I think she did a great job.
Another view of the completed house. It was all ready for the Midnight Feast after Mass but we didn't eat it till a few days later.
Lots of white chocolate to eat later

Hi Gae,
Autumn did an awesome job of putting the gingerbread house together. :)

We were given one, but when we attempted to put it together, it was broken inside the box. :(

Have a great week,

It turned out just lovely, Gae! We still have not made our gingers yet. But I am determined to do them before January is over. :0)

So glad you stopped by for a visit. Our wood stove is just for heating though I often warm food on it stop or cook a pot of stew as well. There's just nothing like wood heat.

I've so enjoyed my visit with you.

Many blessings,

Gingerbread houses are such fun to make! I remember years ago doing one with my kids and we called it "Peppermint Cottage". It was covered with peppermint candies, and we won 3rd place in a contest!
Great idea for the chocolate!
