gingerbread houses

this afternoon was spent with the kids decorating the gingerbread houses. two for friends, and the third, a close-enough replica of our own abode. i used the same gingerbread recipe as the gingerbread army, it's pretty standard and very simple. i also used the staple royal icing recipe.

our house on my grandmother's cake plate

next year when i make our house again i'm going to cut out windows and fill them with life savers! yummy stained glass!
