Gingerbread House 2019

While having lunch with my son one day in November he shared with me he wanted to build a gingerbread house this year as part of our Christmas decorating.
When my boys were younger we had a gingerbread house making party with some of our dear friends. All being boys, it was great fun to see what designs they came up with and  how much frosting, candy and more they could eat while creating.

When I mentioned the idea to my husband we thought we would try one of the kits we see at the local markets. My husband picked out the Reindeer Barn. 

 Everything you need comes with the kit.
 You have to cut the fondant to the way you want to create the house.
 Atticus is busy starting to create the red barn.
 Using a gumdrop and red frosting I created the wreath.
 Working to make the barn look just like he wanted.
 Starting to put on the finishing touches.
 The icing sets up fast. You do have to work quickly.
 We placed the barn on a tray and made some more icing to create our snow yard for the reindeer.

We had so much fun creating this gingerbread house, that we plan to make this a new family tradition.


  1. This turned out so great! We haven't done gingerbread houses for a few years. I miss it!

  2. It is so good to see a young man interested in this. He did a great job.

  3. The reindeer barn looks fantastic. My daughter has also adopted this Christmas tradition with her family every year. I think it's a wonderful tradition.

  4. He looks as though he was concentrating intently - turned out really great.

  5. It turned out so well! He really paid attention to detail. I love that it is a reindeer barn, too.

  6. What a great job you did! I had the same kit last year and it did NOT look anything like yours!!!

  7. Looks super sweet. This turned out great!

  8. I've never made a gingerbread house, but always wanted to! Maybe next year . . . :)

  9. We do this every year and we all still love it. Looks like you have an engineer or an architect on your hands!

  10. My gingerbread houses never looked this wonderful! Great job.
    I found you via A Joyful Cottage. :)

  11. Wow! That takes a steady hand and a marvelous imagination. Great Job!!!

  12. Atticus sure did a good job building that gingerbread house. I've always thought it would be fun.

  13. What a great job! Looks like a great family project :)

  14. I've always loved red barns and this one is the best yet.

  15. I love it! We use to make some years ago. Actually I wanted to do one that I saw in the Target flyer a couple of weeks ago but it was sole out. It was a camper!

  16. That looks so good! Great job!

    All the best Jan
