Gingerbread Houses – Have You Ever Made One?

So last week on Twirlit, I posted about Gingerbread Houses and how I’ve come across some that just blow my mind. I for one, have zero artistic ability (and no Internet shame) so I’ll share here what I didn’t share on Twirlit… My personal experience.

Seriously, the one time I attempted to construct one, it turned out all sorts of wrong. I got a kit since it seemed mindless, simple, and FAIL proof – right? Well… check this out:

I followed the directions and it still turned out like that. How is that even possible? (picture circa 2005ish) Since then, I have Gingerbread House TRAUMA and have not attempted to make another.

Have you ever made one?

  1. You’re so hard on yourself! And the picture made me laugh. FAIL. But the picture is WIN! I am more a consumer of gingerbread homes than a builder. I’d even eat the gumdrops off a gingerbread house if I knew they were glued on.

    I think I have a problem.

  2. LG – I think you need to zoom into the image because it is all sorts of FAIL hahahhahaha! But I’m glad I made you laugh.

    And the glue explains it. Yes you DO have a problem!! But it’s ok. I am here for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. :)

  3. Thanks for the laugh, Mona … I blame the kit, though. They never give you enough icing or candy to make it look like it’s depicted on the box. Your house is definitely unique. LOL!

    Merry Christmas!

    :D

  4. OMG THAT is TOTALLY it, Brandon. There is not enough icing!!!!! And unique is too nice. That is a piece of shit. HAHA

    Merry Christmas to you too, B
    :)

  6. I wish I had pictures. And this year we didn’t get around to it. My daughter and I have a semi-tradition of making a gingerbread house from scratch, with no pattern. They usually come out looking incredibly dilapidated. A couple of years ago we started calling it a “ginger-crack-house” – is that wrong?
