The gingerbread house


It’s been some very busy days around Christmas but I still wanted to share my little gingerbread house with you. It is inspired by a gingerbread house that I saw in the Martha Stewart Holiday Sweets magazine from 2009.

The roof is all glittered with lots of sugar. I have used gelatin sheets for the windows, which I like better than the melted candy windows. Inside is a small string of holiday bulbs, which gives the house a nice glow. I have only piped a little white royal icing on the house as I do like my gingerbread house simple.

Here you can see how it looks when it’s getting darker outside. So cozy!

Happy Holidays!

      Gelatin sheets are not expensive, well at least not here in Denmark. I buy a packet with 10 sheets and there are enough for 2 houses depending on how big the house and how many windows it has.

    I love this gingerbread house. Where can I find a template for this one and the other gingerbread house? Thank you.

      Hi Kathy, due to problems with the comment I have not been able to answer before now. Sorry! I don’t have templates for the gingerbread houses. I have used a template from Martha Stewart and made my own template from that. I do hope that I can add a template for next Christmas I just need someone to do it for me as I don’t know how to do it.
