My friend, Michelle, and I were dying to make gingerbread houses during the holidays and ended up creating something awesome: A Toadstool Candy Cottage!



Michelle baked the house and the roof from scratch out of actual gingerbread.  The roof, a solid piece of gingerbread, was baked inside a pyrex bowl to achieve its perfectly round shape.  Since it was solid, it was pretty heavy, so we reinforced the inside with some cardboard tubing.


We made little mushrooms a number of ways.  The little colored ones are made from gumdrops.  Just squish one gumdrop and then stick it (with icing, of course) on top of an un-squished gumdrop.  There are also teeny mushrooms made with regular gumdrops and bell shaped gumdrops.  The larger mushrooms were made with bell shaped gumdrops, and topped with either lumps of Gingerbread or Nilla Wafers.

Too fun!!  I love this.

At Christmas, we made a gingerbread train, but it was all from a kit.  Yours is much better.

Thanks, everybody! The idea was our own, and Michelle designed the actual walls and roof, and baked them to size and shape. It was loads of fun. Can't wait for next year so we can do another one!
