I found a gingerbread kit at Trader Joe's last week, and it looked really cute so I couldn't resist. I've always wanted to make a gingerbread house with the kids. One year I even went as far as making plans, finding a vegan gingerbread recipe, and buying the candy to decorate it. But that was as far as I got. The kits are not very original or creative, but they are easy!
The little candy people were the cutest part of the kit. Of course my kids ended up breaking the head off one and using it for a tree topper. They put a gummy head on the body so it would look like Yoda. The other one went on upside down because he is falling off the roof. And yes, that is icing on Alex's face. Sprinkles are everywhere, but it was worth the mess.
