This gave us brilliant ideas for themed houses. More on that to come.
I was fortunate enough to get a snow day from work on a Friday, so I occupied my day mixing dough, letting it rest, then later rolling and building.
Meanwhile, I set to work giving my house some siding. I had all of the tools I needed...
In talking with the other Gingerbuilders, we decided to use candy windows from here out. The surface of melted candy is smoother than cut gingerbread. Plus, then the windows really glow! I put a Christmas tree inside the windows of this house, but it's not easy to see.
The swirly peppermint Christmas Tree was a great find! And the peppermint path made a LOT of noise in my blender, but I think it's quite welcoming.
Another seasonal candy win was the snowman who greets you at the door.
And here's the Peppermint Farmhouse!
