A Gingerbread House Demolition Tea

In case you missed it, I had made a Gingerbread House for Christmas this year.  While I was making it, my family kept asking me what I would do with it.

Me: “Well, it’s meant to be eaten.
Mom/Dad/the bro: “You can’t destroy it!
Me: “Well, it can’t stay there forever.

After they finally resigned themselves to the fact that it would eventually be destroyed, my mom came up with the idea to have a Gingerbread House Demolition Tea.  It would be a fun way to destroy it, while getting rid of all that gingerbread at the same time!

That’s exactly what I decided to do.

Mother nature however, had other plans as it randomly decided to throw a blizzard our way during the time of the tea.  A lot of people couldn’t come, but some still braved the weather (couldn’t believe they trekked out in that!) and decided to come.

Good times were had by all!

My First Gingerbread House

Merry Christmas! I thought I would post something festive today, being Christmas Eve and all 🙂

I’ve been wanting to make a gingerbread house for years.  It’s been on my baking bucket list (yes, I have a baking bucket list) and I’m so happy I finally get to cross it off!  This wasn’t the easiest house to make and I’ve definitely learned a lot on what to do next time (especially on those damn wrought iron fence railings!), but I still wanted to share it all with you (mistakes aside).

Hopefully it will put you in the Holiday mood and inspire you to make your own!
