Everyone seems very excited about starting this project. Alex was beside Nik & not in the picture. You can tell who the camera hogs are, right?
Nik, helping to roll out the fondant. With my grandmother's old rolling pin. She was a talented cook and baker. Me, not so much. Though I will say I can make cakes and decorate them. Used to work in a bakery so learned a bit. Wished they'd taught me to make eggs.
We were in the process of reading directions at this point.
She doesn't seem to mind how this project is going.
Serious about her icing this little one.
Why I still had her in a dress, I'm not sure. That green icing though pretty much matches "Shrek's swamp" out back.
No kids, put some more sprinkles on there. Clearly, there are not enough on those cookies yet. Notice Reni picking them off the table?
Even w/ the repair on the back of the house, we really thought at this point it may actually stay erect. It may work! Excitement was building. Maybe, just maybe we could get a roof on this sucker this year. After all, it did say easy to assemble.
This was clearly not our year, again, for a gingerbread house. It just is not meant to be. Unless Martha Stewart delivers one herself, it's not going to happen.
Why I didn't do this in the beginning, I'll never know. Why not just dump the stupid kit out, splatter some icing on it and eat away?
