I went to Michaels in search of a piping bag, determined that this was the year that I master the art of gingerbread house making. Do you know those simple bags cost twelve dollars and no doubt clogs up an entire kitchen drawer? Moral dilemma…
Then I saw Duff from Charm City Cakes staring out at me from the racks. Check out that devilish grin! I shoved the piping bag back on the shelf and grabbed Duff’s Gingerbread House Kit, rather thrilled by my find (It included the candy!).
This is what Duff’s house looked like on the box. Isn’t it charming? So cute and inviting, it makes you want to just walk on up the gumdrop path and pop inside for some hot chocolate.
We couldn’t wait to get started!
Candy’s out. So far so good!
Roofs caving in. One child is screaming, “Epic fail!” The other is crying out of control. It’s a blood bath. It’s a gingerbread house disaster! I think I need a shot of peppermint schnapps! No, I need to go to bed. It’ll look better in the morning. Right?
Duff! Help! Do you think that I really needed that piping bag?
Next year, I’m all over it.
