Gingerbread house


I´m simply unable to imagine Chrismas without the smell of the beautifully decorated gingerbread cookies. When my Mom starts to make tons of them, that´s when I know that Christmas is just around the corner.
But believe it or not, this is the first time that I actually tried to make a gingerbread house. I´ve been eyeing them here and there on the internet, but it was my trip to Vienna Christmas market that made up my mind. I was really impressed and inspired by the huge gingerbread house I saw there and I really wanted to try it for myself. Of course, my gingerbread house is nowhere near as huge, but I´m still pretty giddy with the results! It´s cute, colorful, and it makes me happy everytime I see it.
What about you? Did you make your own gingerbread house this year?
