Take 2


So I did another gingerbread house today.. I am getting quicker :) My 7 year old is going to be very happy to take hers to school tomorrow. After this effort I am not doing any more baking for a few days!

The problems I encountered this time.. I was just doing the finishing touches and I looked to the other side of the kitchen and saw all the lollipops in the broken house - STILL there - NOT inside the new house!! whoops!! I shoved as many as I could through the tiny door, but will just have to give the rest to the teacher to hand out.

Buy yourself a icing bag and kit... I just used ziplock bags and the one icing tip I had.. Royal Icing is thick and hard to push through, I popped so many zip lock bags the last two days - more than I care to count.. So to forget that hassel... buy an icing bag!!

The first one looked good too - they both do! I think you will become one of those gingerbread making pros - every ward has one. There's one lady in our ward who does houses with the family names over the door - it's so cute!

Thanks for the cupcake with nutella idea - that sounds really yummy. I haven't bought nutella before but I had a dream about it the other night so I better get a jar into the house :)

Yep, I'm a Triffitt!
