Yesterday I made the most adorable little gingerbread houses. But these are not your ordinary houses, these little guys sit on the edge of your mug of hot chocolate, just to make it super special. My mom found the tutorial over at Not Martha, and she wanted to give them as gifts. Since my mom had to work until 6 last night, I was in charge.
It was my first time making gingerbread houses without my mom. Luckily, she'd already made the dough, so she was able to help me bake & build the first one before leaving for work. But then I was on my own. I made 9 total.
My favorite part was decorating, of course!
It was a lot of fun and not too hard, so check out the tutorial if you're interested!
P.S. We had dinner at a friend's last night and brought these for the hosts. They were very well received!
