    Thumbs up Gingerbread houses/ who does them and will you show us ?

    My kids and I do one every year, but I buy the pre made ones and do our own decorating. I have tried to make them by scratch, but this always never works LOL! So we buy the kit, then we buy what kinds of things we want to decorate with and go from there. Any one else do a ginger bread house? when we are done I will post a pic of ours, we do not start it until the endo of the month but we love making them and eating them !!

    A friend and I did them once. I did them from scratch using a pattern and a ginger bread recipe I had. We made such a mess! The best part was taking mine to a New Year's party where some friends smashed it and then devowered it.

    We had a bad experience with the last one! I think we'll stick with gingerbread cookies
    I saw some really cute Foam Gingerbread House kits at Michaels that I want to get for the boys though.

    We also get a kit and it never looks like the one on the box. I get very upset that I cannot accomplish the gingerbread house when I am so crafty!

    one year we bought a kit around Easter time to make a "bunny house" and it was just God awful! We called it the Bunny Crack House

    to you out there than can make these from scratch!!!

    We usually get a kit and do one so if we get around to it this year, I'll post pictures - it's really fun! I am hoping to get my shopping done in the next month so that I have more time for fun stuff like this as Christmas approaches.

    Yes!!! we saw the commercial for the Halloween one! We missed it but they'll be showing it again I'm sure.

    My son is amazed at those shows.... One of them not too long ago was held in a resort in Atlantic City, NJ... Now my son is begging to find out if they'll have it there again so we could go see it live. I think it was the cake contest, there was a carosel cake, a spinning top cake and a bunch of other amazing ones.

    I bake a lot, maybe too much. Gingerbread houses are a favorite because you can do anything you want. One year we did an upside down one. I decorate cakes so maybe that is shy they seem to go too fast. I am making one for my mother this year.

    Re: Gingerbread houses/ who does them and will you show us ?

    We try to do one every year from scratch...but sometimes we just don't have time.

    When my brother in law got married about 10 years ago, they were stationed in Heidleburg, Germany. They had their ceremony in a bomb damaged Medival Castle. The place was beautiful.

    They came home to Texas for the reception and my husband made them a HUGE Gingerbread replica of the castle!

    It was amazing! I'll try to find some pictures!

    Wow- I would love to see that picture!
    I try every year and although they certainly don't look like the food network - it's a great family bonding experience.
    We'll be trying again over Thanksgiving weekend. The guys like to play architect!
