So in theme with out project based parties we hosted a build and decorate Gingerbread House Party.
We invited our friends and filled the table with all kinds of icing, candy, and sprinkles.
Little did I know the recommendation is to space the process of baking, building and decorating over three days.
On top of that we were aiming for an ambitious castle design including round towers.
Then there was the issue of the royal icing, the stuff just wasn't drying for me.
So I started just decorating the gingerbread men and random pieces on the table.
Eventually all I had was the tower, which we couldn't help but notice it looked like the torch on the Statue of Liberty.
But it was a nice crowd and we had Christmas Crackers (that's where the paper hats came from).
