Hi Everybody...I hope you are all well...I have been a busy little bee preparing for Christmas... I am so excited for My Daughter to come home from University. I spoke to her the other day and I cant believe how 4 months of being on her own she has developed in to a mature young lady... Her dad and I are so proud of her.... I am also having my whole family join us at our house this year. There will be 12 of us in total...So bake bake bake is all I have done for days lol.... I wanted to share my first Gingerbread house that I have made from Scratch!!! I bought the silicone mold from a local store Gifts and Gadgets, made my ginger bread, royal icing and picked out way to much candy lol.... The little reindeer was made from gum paste that I learned how to do from Melissa at My cake school. I also searched around for ideas on google and seen this house from Sweetopia and loved the icicle idea :).... Well that is it for me today. Thanks for dropping by :)..

Hi Monique!
We are also waiting for our daughter to come home after 4 months of study in Switzerland... very far way from home!(this is her first year of studies) I am so exited to see her after such a long time!

Hi Monique,
Long time no see. Hope you've been doing well. Awwwww; this is such a sweet little Gingerbread House. Reminds me of my childhood; I remember one year my mum made me one that I had standing in my room....it was soooo cute until the neighbor's big dog came around and bit off a piece of the roof. :-)

Merry X-mas to you.

Hey Monique,
I have missed you my friend. For some reason, your december post never showed up for me. I tried to find the one that was suppose to posted today, but it didn't come up either. I think my computer is going completely crazy. Of course, I love your gingerbread house. Do you do anything that doesn't turn out amazing. Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year.
God Bless
Sherry
