Mid Century Gingerbread House

I know Christmas is over but last week I cheated a lazy little mid century gingerbread house out of a preassembled kit and it turned out pretty cute for minimal effort so I’m sharing for future Christmases!

The kit from World Market is adorable as is. But with a few tweaks you can get a butterfly roof. Just cut the middle section in half and swap it around. I staggered them and assemble the walls wrong side out for added texture.

The ultimate cheater move is to use a glue gun. We never eat ours anyway after its been sitting out and hot glue is way easier to work with than frosting. Add a candy cane palm tree, a frosting pool, and a chocolate chip double-cone light and done!
