Here is a useful site that was pointed out to me today on the 4 Real forums. Bobvila.com, well known for helping do-it-yourself-ers with home renovations, has instructions for building a gingerbread house. To coin a phrase of another famous Bob, "Can we build it? Yes we can!"
We've made many gingerbread and cookie houses over the years. We even have a mold for building a chocolate house. This year, we're considering something a little rustic. Marina baked the gingerbread logs last night, so if all goes well (fingers crossed), we'll have a nice little gingerbread log cabin this year. I'll let everyone know how that works out.
