We decided to make a gingerbread house this year. It was so much fun to decorate. We actually have a gingerbread house mold from Lee Valley Tools. It's great, and has two different house designs to choose from. Plus you make the gingerbread yourself, which won't have any preservatives like store bought versions. Can't wait to eat it!
Royal Icing Without Eggs
As I shouldn't be eating raw eggs right now, I used a slightly different recipe for the icing.
