Ho-Ho-Ho! Watch-out for the Santa Express Gingerbread Train!
This Santa Express Gingerbread Train display was the first non-house gingerbread item I’ve created, and the challenge was super fun!
A quick and easy beginners gingerbread house
The Elf Gingerbread House was created when I needed a quick and easy gingerbread house for a gingerbread party/fellowship at a local church. Most of the participants were very new at gingerbread house decorating, and many had never used a pastry bag!
Inspired by the old Cal Young Yolk Farm house
The Cal Young Gingerbread House is inspired by the real house located at 1610 Cal Young Street, in Eugene, Oregon. While I liked the size and style of the house, I didn’t like the front porch. So I didn’t include it in the template.
St. Andrews gingerbread house; inspired by a real house in Eugene, Oregon
The St. Andrews House is a favorite house of mine. Simple and yet majestic, with grand front columns made from giant candy cane sticks.
The Ultimate Gingerbread House Glue
A quick Google search will provide a plethora of recipes for Royal Icing, used to construct a Gingerbread House. They are all pretty much the same with small variations in amount of water, which will always be a variable from day to day anyway.
Literally baking wood in the kitchen!
After what feels like a lifetime of trying different gingerbread dough recipes, looking for the perfect dough for constructing a gingerbread house, I think I may have the perfect recipe.
