Gingerbread Barn

Over Christmas vacation, my little brother and both my parents made this gingerbread barn! I take no credit for it šŸ˜‚

The gingerbread itself was delicious and held together well without puffing up in the oven. Here’s a link to all the instructions.

For the icing, any basic royal icing will work! For construction, thicker icing was better, and for decoration, thinner was easier to work with.

My brother put so much time into decorating the whole thing by himself! Didn’t he do an awesome job?

The dusting of powdered sugar was just what it needed to make it more messy.

 If you couldn’t tell, the slivered almonds are supposed to be shingles. Such a cool idea!

What was your favorite part?

Have you ever made a gingerbread building?
