OK.. I didn't MAKE gingerbread houses this year -- but I'll try to find some pictures of previous Christmas when I did!!
This was the year of the kit! These inexpensive kits were EVERYWHERE! This kit was pre-assembled. The candy AND the frosting were included.
Lots of fun and a lot less mess on my part..
Here is my daughter Natalie and her cousin, Alex, working on a house. I don't believe I managed to get a picture of the finished project. :o( The royal icing is difficult to squeeze, but girlfriend managed !!
