The Gingerbread House
I suppose I could do lots of research into the myriad forms of gingerbread and the correct one for construction, but the fact is every year when the Christmas stuff goes on sale (around Halloween, these days) I pick up a kit for around $8. Here's the results this year!
All the candy came with the kit except for the chips. I picked up chocolate, cinnamon, and buttercotch chips for cookies, and Junior put them in the swirls on the roof. Kiddo was the artistic director on the shutters and gumdrop "shrubberies", and personally added the rooftop gumdrops.
