    I must admit I have never thought of doing a gingerbread house, because of all the little details, and the possibility of it resembling more a halloween hunted house instead of a winter wonderland, lol,but she has such talent! I’m in love with those houses!

    Those look absolutely gorgeous! I love to bake, but my creations usually rank higher in taste than beauty. I’m just not that artistic:) I have tried the gingerbread house kits, which turn out pretty well, but nothing like these.
