My Gingerbread House has Solar Panels

This year husband’s been hinting at making a gingerbread house – loudly. I said I was willing to give it a go even though neither of us has made such a thing. However, we decided not to tempt the Condo Blues whammy and buy a kit since this was our first cookie construction project.

Notice how pretty the example house looks on the box? Our gingerbread house looks nothing like it.

We suited up. Husband in his Iron Chef apron and me in my Fun Baker apron.


We got to work.

We added candy solar panels to our gingerbread house. What makes it green, right?

OK, so our panels aren’t as cool as Erika Jean’s real solar panels  but I bet Santa has solar panels made out of candy canes up at the North Pole, just ask him.

Now the big question. What do you do with a gingerbread house after you've made it? Keep it or eat it? Did you enjoy this post? Get more like it by subscribing to the Condo Blues RSS Feed or to Condo Blues by Email.
