Do you know the muffin man?
I made this with the help of my friend's mom who is quite the gingerbread house queen. I'm new to America so the tradition of gingerbread house making is new to me. It was so much fun and I'm looking forward to making it an annual holiday tradition.

Front of the house with peeps snow man, frosted upturned ice cream cone, nerd rope door frame and candy cane pathway.

Chimney made of peppermint rock candy.

Roof made of Nutter butters and topped with Hershey's candy cane kisses.

The light! Love the gingerbread house smell that you get after having the light on for a little while.

Ooh that's pretty. I find it neat how the walls are textured! It looks like little stones.

Oh, dear!  I LOOOOOVE nutter butters!  Good thing this little gem is not in my house, you mightn't have gotten a pic before it got DEVOURED!  Shocked

This house is so very lovely!  I like how it looks like a stone cottage.  There are so many details!  Wonderful work!

I like the pattern on the walls, too! And pretty sparkly dragees! The chimney is a masterpiece as well. This definitely looks good enough to eat.

WOW, I love the whole thing, but especially the stone walls. What did you use to get the different sizes of "stones"?
