HOW TO MAKE A GINGERBREAD HOUSE
Making Gingerbread Houses is one of my all-time favorite things to do during the holidays. It brings me back to my childhood. Growing up in Germany I built these houses starting age 3. They are a delight to make and are a perfect excuse to buy all your favorite candy. Check out the video below to see about how to build it.

ROYAL ICING RECIPE
Royal Icing is a wonderful "glue" for all sorts of holiday projects. You can use it to attach cookies to a cardboard round to make cookie wreaths, etc. In this case we use it to glue the house together and also to attach the candy. It will dry hard in 2 hours.
