So with Halloween approaching I was given a chance to do a Sweet Creations by Good Cook Haunted Gingerbread House. I was excited to do my own Gingerbread house. When I got the kit pictured above I realized that I would have to make my own Gingerbread as this kit is just the cutters for the house.
Wow I thought when I opened the box and saw the cutters. I have never made Gingerbread before so I called my mom who can make or bake anything and asked for her help. Well my mom made me a deal and that was, she would make and bake the gingerbread house pieces for me. I was then to take it home and complete the house at my house lol
Now I learned real quick why my mom wanted me to put the house together at my own home. Want to test the strength of a marriage? Then put a gingerbread house together. I love my husband dearly but I can say there were some very tense moments. The haunted house pieces were done great and we took the advice from my mom to decorate the pieces before putting the house together.
Hubby used some metal rods to hold the walls up on the house until the royal frosting dried. I thought that the rods worked like a charm. The house only took a few hours to fully dry and the rods were removed and left no marks. The haunted gingerbread house only took about an hour to put together.
My husband completed the roof as I was too scare that the roof would fall in. I sat back and watched as I thought for sure it was going to. The Sweet Creations by Good Cook Haunted Gingerbread House turned out great for being our first one ever. Overall I had so much fun doing this with my wonderful husband. I now know the work that all goes into doing a Gingerbread house and will have a great appreciation for them.
