Wow. You have awesome building skills. Are you going to eat it too? It's too lovely to break into surely.

I left it at my sister in law's house. I doubt she will eat it, she likes to save things. But my mother in law (who lives with her) will likely pick off the good stuff in no time.

Looks good. We can never get the walls to stick together. What's your secret?

It's a kit, that came with a house shaped box, and I used frosting to glue the pieces to the house shaped box. Cheating? Perhaps but it's my first proper gingerbread house.

When I was a kid, my mom would use graham crackers for the walls and glue them together with melted sugar. We inevitably broke some walls, but we had plenty of graham crackers so it never felt like you ruined it... you just had to try again.

I will try a real one, no kit, next year and see how I make out.
