Ahoy, gingerbread architects and confectionery enthusiasts! The holiday season is here, and there's no better time to don your imaginary hard hats, because we're about to embark on a fantastical journey: building a gingerbread house from scratch!
You wouldn't build a real house without a plan, so why do the same with a gingerbread one? To start, sketch a blueprint for your edible masterpiece. Are you going for a cozy cottage, a sprawling mansion, or maybe a treehouse? The dough's the limit!
Gather Your Materials
Spices (Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg)
Candy (for decorations)
A shopping list worthy of Santa Claus himself! Once you have all your goodies, set up a workspace. Think of it as your construction site—so no eating the bricks!
