Gingerbread houses are fun for all ages! Each year ours begin with a kit from Michael’s. They are inexpensive and are not too big to decorate. We never eat the house so we shamelessly glue it together with Elmer’s.
Bergdorf Goodman feature this delightful house in their Jazz Age Christmas windows. Eli’s and Dylan’s Candy Store have what they call pre-made (?!) gingerbread house kits. The houses come built – just add the candy.
This magnificent house was created for a Connecticut Christmas benefit auction by a local pastry chef. The greenhouse windows were a kind of spun sugar. Each brick of the building and fieldstone of the foundation was hand crafted. A generous bidder won the house and immediately donated it back to be enjoyed by the charity. Now that IS the spirit of Christmas!
