Gingerbread House

For years I've wanted to make a gingerbread house.  Last year I was finally motivated to do it and with Mary Ann's help we made it happen. I found a template in a book and made the gingerbread from scratch.  Then we just ran with it and kept coming up with more and more ideas of things to add.  This year I wasn't really in the mood to do it.  It's a project that takes time and you really need to be in the mood to do it. It took us about 3 weeks to complete.  Below is the end result.  The base is a lazy susan that we covered with cardboard and foil. I made two batches of royal icing which makes great glue and snow.  Everything is edible except for the base.  Happy Holidays!!!
