Gingerbread House Feature
First Annual Holiday Decorating Party
Leigh Limpic & Friends

In 2016, Leigh Limpic, who had never made a gingerbread house before, threw a novice decorating party for 12 of her friends, none of whom ever made a gingerbread house before either.

Using the recipe from Gingerbread House Dough Recipe & Baking Instructions, Leigh mixed two different tones of dough, which she chilled, rolled, cut and baked to make 12 sets of walls, roofs, chimneys, doors and windows.

Leigh went above and beyond, adding texture and details to the components using some of the more advanced inlay and overlay effects covered in Gingerbread House Dough Recipe & Baking Instructions. To date, this is the most comprehensive display of techniques from within that book that I have had the pleasure of seeing.

Above are the assembled houses, all ready to be decorated by her guests. Below are the final results, each adorned with its own sweet style and personality. Among all the details, some of my favorites are the candy rock chimney, the pretzel stick roof, the caramel fire ring and the strings of holiday lights. The kid in me would like to live in the gumdrop palace with the red chimney studded in Boston baked bean candy coated peanuts.

Someone went with a tropical theme, landscaping the front yard of their gingerbread house with edible palm trees made of sour fruit string + Pirouette Rolled Wafers®. I love it!
