This was my first Gingerbread House. I figured I could bake, decorate cookies, so surely I could build a Gingerbread House. Much more labor intensive than I imagined it would be and some frustrating moments, but over-all, very happy with my first attempt. Gingerbread, royal icing covered sugar cones for trees, royal icing windows peak, pretzels for fences, and various candies for decorating. The roof was done with fondant.
