Basically, there is a little printable sheet you can print from her blog, she used a mini gingerbread house kit she has to make it. You roll out your dough (here's my favorite gingerbread cookie recipe), and cut out two of each template.
They are so precious sitting on the side of the mugs. I'm planning on filling the mugs with hot chocolate mixes, and I may try out some different cookie doughs, but this pattern has won my heart.
Now I want to talk about my feelings.
I made these time one, I didn't roll the dough thin enough and I just winged the sizes, and thus, my house didn't stay glued together, and I tossed it in frustration. I was using the scraps of some gingerbread at this attempt, so...I had to make more dough...
Time number 2....I winged it again, but I learned, and I got closer.
Lilly and Peanut supervised, per usual, and we were happy with the results. I crushed some peppermints for the rooftop, did a happy dance at the outcome and the concept of it 'working', and turned to grab my camera. I took a picture of this....like it's anything new....but it never really gets old.
In the meantime I hear 'plop' and I turned around and two of my walls are missing, there was icing on a puppy nose, and after much investigation, a lengthy trial...a unanimous decision was made....
It's not his first crime, you'd think I'd learn, but you just don't understand how fast this criminal is when it comes to things he wants!
He obviously learned his lesson.
I'm now off to solve the case of the abused duvet cover. It was suspiciously found laying across the floor carelessly strewn about as if Pottery Barn duvets grow on trees. And then...I'm calling a glue factory to get the exact requirements for product submission.
