Damn gingerbread houses!!

:iconfillintheblankstares:

Why are gingerbread houses so horrible to put together?!

Every year someone in my family gets one, and whenever I try making them it's like icing hell is breaking loose. :nuu: All I want to do is make the stupid sides stick up straight...but instead I somehow end up with icing everywhere and six pieces of crappy gingerbread laying on their sides.

I mean, at least make the gingerbread taste good if I'm not getting anything else out of it. :tears:

I've never made one, and I don't think the thing would ever be put together. Pieces would go missing in the process! ;)

We make them, and never eat them. :stare:

I am always so tempted to though... ;---;

Eating them is especially tasty if you pretend to be a wrecking ball or another destructive force.

I like dipping the gingerbread into the icing and then topping it with M&Ms.

Normally we all get along fine, but when it comes to Monopoly my mom and I both start getting really frustrated if we start doing badly...which happens a lot.

I love gingerbread so much, and now you've made me hungry.

I can't wait to build/eat my gingerbread house, and eat my sister's because she doesn't like gingerbread so much :giggle:

Huh, we always find a good brand- I think it's called Wilson's and you can find them at A.C. Moore's (a craft store). My mom makes some great gingerbread, too :D

Before I moved we always had the good kind, but for the past couple of years we haven't been able to find it because some of the stores here are different.

The thing is, with ones that taste good I just get annoyed and start eating things out of frustration. So maybe there' just no winning.

That would probably be a good idea...

...WAIT! Gingerbread men live in houses made from the same thing as they are, which is probably the equivalent the a dress made of human skin...
