Epic Gingerbread

This year, I inherited a family tradition: Building a giant gingerbread structure and hosting a decorating party.

I’ve never attempted a baking project this large at home. Luckily, my sister-in -law, the originator of this concept, came over to help me bake and cut. The house was to be 3 ft long by 2.5 ft tall. It took us several hours to mix, cut and bake the gingerbread. Then, I let it sit for about 5 days to dry out and get stronger.

On New Year’s Day, we invited friends over to decorate it and help bring it to it’s final glory. I used 8 pounds of powder sugar to make enough royal icing for the party!

Overall it was really a fun time!
