We made a Hawaiian style gingerbread house this year! It was a lot of fun. We started with a Wilton gingerbread house kit. If you decide to try this yourself, don't use the frosting that comes with the kit, it doesn't dry firm enough. We learned the hard way when my little one's gingerbread house collapsed! For this house I made a traditional Royal Icing...it works so well that we jokingly call it concrete! The roof is crumbled Frosted Mini Wheats cereal. The sand is brown sugar. The ocean is clear blue frosting. The palm tree was borrowed from my kids' Playmobil toys. Add a little Hawaii Christmas cheer to your home by making your own gingerbread grass shack! If you have any questions or comments about our gingerbread hale feel free to ask. Mele Kalikimaka!
Aloha E Komo Mai!
