Candy Houses

Our great aunt Anne taught us several years ago how to made sturdy, larger gingerbread houses. We have now made this a tradition.

To make these houses more sturdy and durable, you create a house structure with a cardboard.

You then lay icing as mortar and graham crackers as brick. BRILLIANT! A finally, we use icing to embellish the house.

Here are our 2016 houses. We ended up taking two to the local nursing home to spread some cheer. :)
