With the arrival of spring, we are making some serious plans for the holidays. I love the idea of gingerbread, but it doesn’t always translate well to reality. This year’s gingerbread, made by my friend and colleague, Kristine, is a perfect example. Kristine, who is an interior designer, made a gingerbread house for her clients, and it is simply brilliant.
Kristine’s gingerbread house is a great example of the joy to be found in the magic of creative design. It is just pure gingerbread goodness. (I’m also partial to other Christmas traditions, like decorating cookie jars and eating cookies.
Gingerbread has a magic charm, but it can also be a disaster for its hosts. A gingerbread house must be in the best regards for the people who actually own it. It does have some of the most bizarre, but also very effective magic tricks. Kristine’s gingerbread house makes the magic of gingerbread much more powerful and memorable.
There are various ways to make it easy for people to own a gingerbread home, and one of the simplest is to use this site’s gingerbread house generator. If you want to impress your neighbors, your neighbors’ families, and your guests, it’s the easiest way to put together a gingerbread house and have everyone’s eyes glaze over.
Gingerbread houses are all pretty much the same. You take a picture and upload it to this site, and the house then appears in the post. You can use different designs to match your house to your decor. You can make yours look like a gingerbread man, or a gingerbread cookie, or a gingerbread house. The first time I made my own gingerbread house, I was completely taken aback by how ridiculous it looked, but you can really put your own personality into it.
You might think that gingerbread houses are just a bunch of plastic and tin, but in this case they’re all actual gingerbread. I don’t know if you get a chance to visit the house where I made my own, but I’m sure they’re very happy to see you. If you’ve made a gingerbread house, or even if you don’t, I’m sure there’s a gingerbread cookie recipe you can get your hands on that is better than mine.
Gingerbread houses are a popular holiday treat in many places, and it’s hard to believe that I spent a lot of time making one of them. But you can actually make them, and many are made with actual gingerbread. I made my own using a recipe I found on Pinterest, and you can find the recipe on my website too. It’s a bit different because I use real pieces of ginger, but I’m sure there are other ways to make it.
I know this. Not because I need to eat gingerbread every day, but I think it has something to do with the fact that ginger has its flavor in the form of chlorophyll and the idea that a gingerbread house makes a lot more sense than a cookie.
