This season is only the second time I’ve made a gingerbread house, the first being in 2010 when Lisa and I made a gingerbread church with stained glass windows. Thanks to the nimble index fingers of Pinterest, that has become one of the most popular posts on this site.
This year I made another house in the same style, only instead of a church, I modeled the building after the one that Lisa and I live in, in McKernan.
The shingles are sliced almonds, also affixed with royal icing.
The windows are “stained glass” made by the method described in this post. Being a residence and not a church the windows are small and don’t have as warm and bright a glow. Oh well.
