Do you make gingerbread houses every year? We never did as kids and I have never had a desire to make one. From what I have seen of gingerbread houses there are too many things that can go wrong. But what if you could make a gingerbread house that held together perfectly, that didn't require any frosting and could be used year after year? Here is my version of a gingerbread house: a cardboard gingerbread house. The decorations include: fun foam, puffy paint, glitter and window calking.
Stay tuned for a full tutorial on how to make one of these houses plus ideas on how to decorate it. Before you get up to your elbows in royal icing save a couple of cardboard boxes and a lot of headache.
