This is the cheating way of doing a gingerbread house. Since i have a two year old, and a four year old, we figured real gingerbread was too time consuming and hard.. so we used grahm crackers and royal icing. This is the house i made. We had a great time decorating and icing the houses. i got a little carried away and did a chimney and awnings over my windows. but the kids had a blast and are looking forward to destroying them on Christmas day.
