This gingerbread house, while cute, makes me remember why I usually buy kits.  You spend all this time making and cooling the house, just to then have to spend hours decorating.  My 11yo gave up on hers at the 30 minute mark and by the end of the second hour I was pleading with my candy to be bigger so I wouldnt have to decorate anymore, lol. 

Basic of house as they come. Prettier color than the store bought houses though.  The deep molasses color shows much better.  Store bought seems like its almost sugar cookie dough compared to homemade.  I used royal frosting for the roof, but it was thicker than I hoped so my sprinkles weren't sticking.  I ended up getting handfuls of sprinkles and basically throw/punch-ing the sprinkles into the icing.  Well, one throw/punch I missed and showered my 13 year old and kitchen with sprinkles.  That was fun times! 
The rest of the house goodies are stuck on with candy wafer chocolate.  I thought it would taste yummy/look better against the dark color/dry faster.  It worked pretty well.  Though I never did try to eat the house..... which is good....
Because.......reasons to come later.





Well, after the season I went to toss the houses and 11 year old daughter shouts that she knows what to do with them instead.  She had just gotten an inflatable T-Rex costume for Christmas!  Begin Massacre.... 


And this is what I think of you Mr. Take forever decorating house!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Bahaha, you are the best! Cheesy

It really was cute, too!

And you are right.  The deep color is (was) gorrrrgeous, though!

This is the only way I'd approve of a splendid gingerbread house like yours being annihilated beyond recognition. Rwarrr!

Ok, your house is adorable but that video is AMAZING! Who gets an inflatable t-rex costume then wears it outside to crush tiny houses? Only the grooviest kid in the world, that's who. Hysterical.
