Gingerbread Housing

piecedgoods Gingerbread House Many gingerbread houses were made and decorated this weekend at the annual holiday extravaganza. I found and bought on a whim this cookie cutter at Safeway of all places.piecedgoods Gingerbread Houses

The cutter is currently $3.99 in the section with holiday things like Christmas colored sprinkles and cupcake papers. I think it’s genius.  I went back and bought more for gifts.

They were small enough for guests to complete decoration within the confines of a party where there are lots of other activities. One house fits on a paper dessert plate. Decorating with candies doesn’t take 10lbs of candy per house.  And the whole edifice is entirely and reasonably consumable.

    These cookie cutters really were genius! And with two people working together to assemble each house, one with the cookies and one with the “morter icing”, the building process went very fast!
