So here's a gingerbread house I made myself. This is not made from a kit. I made my own dough and layout and bought all of the candies and such that I thought would look good. Each piece was individually baked and this took a total of 13 hours from prep time to finish. There are Christmas lights inside the house and the windows you see are actually melted butterscotch disks. The lovely snow you see is coconut shavings. I really had fun with this and I think it turned out quite nice for my very first attempt at a homemade gingerbread house.
