5 batches of royal icing (recipe here), 2 boxes of graham crackers (I know we cheated), $30.00 dollars worth of holiday candy = one fun family gingerbread house making partay!
The Tudor: Steeply pitched roof, small window panes, and decorative 17th century “timbering”… (I tried, lol). I’m pretty happy with it. Especially, happy about my overly sized snowman. Estimated house value $151,849 (3 bedrooms, 3 bath)
The Minimalist: You get what you see. Affordable modern. If you love modern architecture but can’t find it in the price you can afford, look no further. Wide open floor plans, minimalist design, tons of natural… gingerbread. Estimated house value $325,00 (2 bedrooms, 1.5 bath)
Country Comfort: Nothing feels like home like this cozy estate with built-in candy cane door frame. Great starter home. Estimated house value $194, 266 (2 bedrooms, 1 bath)
Green Living: Remarkable new green home. Large garden, and built in solar panels on the roof. Estimated house value $316,00 (2 bedrooms, 2 baths)
And of course, I saved the best for last. The Gatsby. This bad boy can be yours! A gingerbread stone palace fit for American royalty, this home includes an awe-inspiring foyer, cathedral ceilings and a red-carpeted staircase. This waterfront property is the candy home of your dreams. Estimated house value $2.9 million (10 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms)
Haha, fun musings. I promise more fun holiday baking to come.
