Looking for a faster way to get to the decorating parts of the Gingerbread House? We all forget how much prep work they take before they can be decorated. Today I’m happy to share wit hour our simplest “secret” trick to The Gingerbread House!
Fortunately for me, this event is always sponsored by the boy’s Gramom (my mom)! Yeah for Grand-moms! They can swoop in and dole out the fun and magic. I usually have great intentions for creating those “magical Christmas moments”, but they can easily get lost in the hustle and bustle.
1. Buy a gingerbread house kit (this one is from Trader Joe’s, but you can purchase it here.
2. Get out your glue gun! This is the best tip you’ll see. No need to wait around for the icing to dry. Glue the sides to the base for a quick house. It should dry in less than 60 seconds. Now use your icing for decorating fun! (Remember: don’t eat it!)
3. Leftover candy from Halloween, pull it out now and decorate away!
