Gingerbread Goes Modern

It's  Gingerbread Making time!
Don't be ashamed to nibble on some candy while you decorate your house.  It's the holidays!! So treat yourself!  


Our Modern Gingerbread House 
We hope to live here someday ha...


Here is the recipe for good gingerbread house icing.
It's really sticky so it holds your house together very well.

    Icing Recipe 

  • 1 pound of powder sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3 egg whites

Beat slowly for about 5 mins. Put icing in a pastry bag or plastic bag.  Cut a hole in the bottom corner of the plastic bag to act as a pastry bag.  (Be sue to place a wet cloth over the bowl of icing.  It hardens very fast.)

Other cute gingerbread houses made by my family.

Check back tomorrow and see what Evan is up to...

Feel free to leave us a comment. 
 We would love to hear from you!!
