Intro: Gingerbread A-Frame Ski House
EDIT: New and Improved! Now with visible pictures!
The RavingWife, RavingChild and I do a gingerbread house every year about this time, but this is our first attempt at making one without using a kit. I like this one much better than any of the kit ones we've done. Plus, the InstructaBot came by to see how things were going, so that was fun.
For those who may be interested, the chimney is peanut brittle, the roof is ginger snaps, the logs are pretzel sticks, and the railing on the graham cracker balcony is chocolate covered pretzels. The 'bot was just freehanded out of gingerbread, painted with yellow food coloring, and decorated with grey & black fondant and red icing. Luckily, I had some fondant left over from the ninja-star cupcakes I made for RavingChild's birthday, or Mr. Robot may not have had any wheels....
