Faulty Cottages



Almost every year we build gingerbread houses and usually we use graham crackers and homemade royal icing for our construction materials. This year, because of time and space constraints we opted for using kits-big mistake! Kelli and I worked as a team and of course Chad and Tasha were a team. We opened our kit to find amost every piece broken or cracked! This inspired me to whisper to Kelli- "We'll just build a cracked house." Well---Kelli thought I said "Crackhouse" and so that was her inspiration for the broken glass laying all around(which she made from scratch) and the bars on the side of the house, not to mention the general trashy appearance of the whole house. The neat and tidy 'Martha Stewart' side of the house is just a fake-out to keep people from getting suspicious!
