Don’t Buy Into These “Trends” About mini gingerbread houses
Have you ever seen gingerbread houses before? I know I have. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen people decorate their houses with gingerbread houses. I can tell you that I have a feeling I have seen a very few gingerbread houses while I was in college. This is not my favorite thing to share, but I think it is a very fun and easy way to incorporate a new holiday into your home.
I agree that gingerbread houses are a great way to incorporate a new holiday into your house. As a home decorating tool, the gingerbread house is an easy build, especially if you can make it out of pretty much any type of material. The big question then is what material to use. Well, if you’re into making out of paper, you can use just about any type of paper.
The only real issue is if youre into making out of paper, you might want to use a sheet of thick paper. Its easy to cut up the paper into a shape you like. Some people even use cookie cutters for making out of paper, which is one of my favorite things to do.
Although you can make really nice gingerbread houses out of paper, in reality, I think it is better if you go with something that is more versatile. I personally love to make out of cardboard, which makes it great to store in the freezer for baking. You can even use a real pumpkin to make a door.
If you make your own gingerbread house, you can decorate it with the icing, candy, ornaments, and all sorts of other things. Some people even make icing cookies out of paper! I have to say, though, it is a lot more challenging to decorate a gingerbread house from scratch.
I remember feeling the same way when I was growing up and making out of cardboard gingerbread houses. It was so much fun to decorate and I loved that I could re-create it a thousand different ways. It’s great if you make a few of these before Christmas, because they are so easy to make and so much fun to decorate.
There are a lot of ways to decorate gingerbread houses. And I’ve even made an icing cookie recipe, but I haven’t made it in a while, so I figured I’d go ahead and share it here with you. It is one of those recipes that is a little more labor intensive than the regular one and makes a lot of different types of cookies, but I still recommend it if you want to make a few of these.
The icing cookie recipe that Ive included is a basic one, but you can make it in much more of a fun way too. Ive made it in the shape of a cupcake tin, so that you can make a really cute mini gingerbread house and decorate it with sugar and sprinkles. Ive also made it in the shape of a cookie with a heart on top, so you can decorate it with candies and nuts and a lot of other stuff.
The icing cookie recipe Ive mentioned above is very simple, but it is very time consuming. In fact, Ive found that I need to bake the recipe for a few days before I can actually use it. That is because each batch of cookies to make has to be made in a specific order. When I first started baking, I would just make a batch with the ingredients, then bake the rest before I was done.
Ive found that if you make the recipe on the weekend and then bake it on Monday, the cookies don’t always turn out as perfectly as you want them to. In fact, if I bake them then I often end up having to let the cookies cool overnight before I can take the next step. That is because when I bake the cookies I get them to rise and bake the top of the cookie off.
