Gingerbread House - With a Sky Light?

I’ve always wanted to make a gingerbread house.  It just seems so “Christmassy” for some reason.   So last year, I bought a handy dandy gingerbread house kit on clearance for $2 and held it patiently until this year.

This was a family adventure.  Dad constructed the building, with assistance and then we all decorated.   It was very Norman Rockwell-ish, at first…

Notice the lovely gumdrop rooftop?  You may want to keep an eye on it.

The finished project, from the front.  Notice anything ODD about those gumdrops?

Here…maybe THIS angle will help you…

Or maybe, this?

Yeah, that side just didn’t want to stay in place.  So we added more frosting, held it in place for a while, FIRMLY and tada!  Yeah…again.

Frost, hold, repeat…and yet again.   Finally after all patience and frosting was expended, we settled for this, a gingerbread house with a skylight…a large skylight.

Seriously, this is our finished project.  The roof is FIRMLY cemented in place about an inch lower than the ridge line of the roof.  But I’m ok with that…and so is Wheezy, the pig who will feasting on it next week.

Pin It!
