Gingerbread Houses 2012

I taught my Gingerbread decorating class again this year and had just as much fun as I had last year.  I saw some familiar faces and some new ones to the class.  We spent the first 30 minutes of the class assembling the pre-bakes gingerbread houses (we used Wilton kits) and learning a few piping techniques such as stars, dots, icicles, zig-zags and wavy lines.  The kits only come with tip 5 and the tree (which you'll see pictured below) came with a star tip.  You really don't need more than that to decorate your gingerbread items.   

 These two were cousins.  Looks like they were having a pretty good time!

 Decorating gingerbread men and women too!!

He was SO proud of his gingerbread man!

 Here is pride too!

My mom and daughter attended the class as well.  It was so fun to have them there.  This is the first time Josie was able to see her mommy teach a class.  It was exciting for the both of us!  And my mom did a GREAT job helping Josie with her house.

 These five had a great time!  Look at the village they created!

 Complete with a beautifully decorated Christmas tree!

 Here's my house that I made.  Mine went to my mom...per tradition.  ;)

 Here is Josie with her completed work of art.

 Evelyn's turned out beautifully as well!

And today, I got to spend some time with my nephew who got to decorate a gingerbread house with his Auntie.

Here he is with his completed work.  And play video games!

SUPER fun!  I love traditions and I hope to carry these on for years to come!  Merry Christmas, Everyone!
