Gingerbread House 2015! Fairytale Forest Cottage

Hey guys, I finally finished the house! It only took me…..5 days.

Gingerbread House 2015! Fairytale Forest Cottage I mentioned a few days ago that I was going to do it in pieces this year to avoid getting overwhelmed because I like to make everything from scratch. I’m so glad I did it that way this year because it made all the difference in stress levels and let me take the time to make it how I wanted. Everything on my house is edible including the dirt on the ground the entire structure of the house, and even the christmas trees ( Shhhhh, I used ice cream cones, the only exception to my all homemade rule.) Other than that I really did make everything, the gingerbread, the icing, the chocolate molding clay, and used cookie crumbs for the roof. Oh, and I designed my own templates. My little sibs have been dying to eat it since I finished and, oh my goodness, it smells so good! 

For those of you who have been following for a while you’ll know that I have this condition that causes me to have to make a gingerbread house every year. It’s a little tradition of mine that always seems to end up in big proportions. This year I did a fairytale cottage. It’s something that I’ve been wanting to do for the past few years but I always decide on something else. Josh really wanted me to make a Millennium Falcon since Star Wars just came out (not sure why because he doesn’t really even like Star Wars) but I had already decided on this. Next year, Josh, next year.

I thought I’d share this as a little bonus weekend post and my way of wishing you all a very very Merry Christmas!!!

Since it is the weekend though, I’m just sharing pictures but if you want my recipe for gingerbread you can go HERE because I posted with last year’s house. What do you guys think, is it better than last year’s?

    Wow, this is super impressive! You must have an incredible amount of patience – I’m not sure I could work on a baking project for so long. I love the little details, like the flower baskets on the balcony!
