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.

    • 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.
