gingerbread cake houses

We had a glorious time with friends decorating both gingerbread cake houses and graham cracker houses! My very talented gf made the cake houses with a darling cottage-shaped bundt pan. (Did I mention they were made-from-scratch gingerbread pound cakes? yummy!) There was tons and tons of candy, frosting, sprinkles, and very creative decor and candy landscaping skills! I agree with Bria, as she emphatically declared, "This is the BEST gingerbread house day EVER!"

Many thanks to my wonderful mother who made this tradition for us as kids. You don't fully appreciate all the effort (and clean up!) required to make Christmas magical until you're the grown-up doing all the work!
