Decorating gingerbread houses is in my top 3 of things I LOVE to do during the Christmas season (my top 2 are decorating the Christmas tree/ house and making sweets!) So it was only natural that I have a gingerbread decorating party! I made homemade gingerbread parts for the houses the night before. Each guest/ child got a platter (shown above) with the walls, roof and sides to their own gingerbread house. I filled a ramekin with cinnamon squares for their chimney if they choose to use them that way.
Here is the back and side of the gingerbread house milk carton, embellished with icing details and decorations.
Add some color to your cookies by filling the tray with candies…. we used the classic red hots candies for that pop of color!
