I realized something over the weekend...

Gingerbreadhousing alone sucks!

I had originally bought this gingerbread house kit cuz I thought it would be something cute to do with either my nephews or my girls... yeah well I was bored Friday night and grumpy and so despite repeated attempts by friends to get me out of the house I stayed in and gingerbreadhoused it up!

I had big thoughts of how fun it would be since I love being crafty and creative & the idea that I would get to eat it all after was already making my mouth water even before I started. I finished the making of this ginger house in about 30 minutes.... ok so it didnt quite occupy my entire evening as I thought it might but thats ok because that left me the entire night to munch at it in front of the tv....

Another thing I realized this weekend.... gingerbread houses are not so yummy when every bite is mixed with sour or chewy candy! I started with the roof mostly because it was the easiest to get to, gingerbread, icing & sour tarts are NOT I repeat NOT a good mix! YUCK... ok so I gave it a second shot and tried to stay away from the sour stuff, this time I got a chewy piece... again YUCK!

I gave up after 2 bites and my Friday night plans of eating that entire house were foiled by candy, who would have thunk it!! SO anyone want some gingerbread house??! I thought ok I just took a tiny piece off the roof I can still display it for a few days to show off my hard or not so hard work but the smell is starting to make me puke a little in my mouth every time I go near it now cuz I keep remembering the taste of the horrible mixture SO its going in the trash tonight!

Pretty to look at but not to taste!



ps- Dont make fun of my G-house makin skills... I tried and the damn icing bag hole was too big... lol

Stay Pretty ;)

NEVER eat the house!!!! they are made to be cute decorations, not to consume!!! they need to start putting that on the box

Very cute house! Yeah, I don't usually eat them, but my kids do. Your right, they're not good to eat, and much more fun when making them with someone.

Very cute! I never eat them. They taste like complete crap :-(

That house is really cute. You should leave it up somewhere in your house, instead of eating it ... because it's so festive!

Omg you didn't wait for me!!! :( I was totally looking forward to it too!!!

AC said...

Looks great btw! :) I would come and eat some - hehehe...

jr said...

hey - you have quite the piping skills hun! I totally love your GBH. I wouldn't be able to make one with someone else - I'd be too opinionated about what went where which defeats the whole purpose I suppose!

That looks excellent, but you're right, they don't taste good. It's a fallacy.

My mom and I always make gingerbread houses, but only to display. Once a few years ago I tried to eat a piece and it was horrible! I've learned to NEVER eat them. And it always take two sometimes three of us to assemble our houses...
