Hello, stuffie world! I’m Cocoa McFluffy from Stuffie Adventures and I’m really excited; it’s (finally) my turn to do a guest post on my favorite blog ever. I knew I had to do one at some point; it was too good of an opportunity to pass up! Thanks so much to Diamond for letting me write on her blog. 🙂
Today I’ll be making a miniature gingerbread house, and the good news is that Tilly found her camera, so you’ll be able to follow along! This might be a huge success, or this might be a colossal failure. Either way, let’s get started, shall we?
Surprise, surprise, the basic structure will only require four supplies!
- White charcoal (for icing)
I’m going to start by cutting out my pieces from a large sheet of cardboard. I have two pieces for the front and back, and two for the sides.
I glue my pieces together to form the gingerbread house structure.
Now, I’m going to cut out two pieces for the roof. Make sure these are of equal size.
I glue those on, and I have my basic structure.
I’m also going to cut out three small pieces for the windows and door; I’ll go ahead and glue those on as well. Now it looks more like a house!
Now, it’s time to get artsy! Take your white charcoal (or chalk) and start icing. (Disclaimer: White charcoal is not truly icing and should not be eaten. But of course, you knew that).
I did eaves for the roof…
Little icicles dripping downwards…
And added windows and embellishments! Tada!
The last step would be to add a pop of color and texture with candy canes, gummies, peppermints, chocolate chips, and other candies. I don’t have much candy with me, but I did add some red icing and a big candy cane.
Here I am with my gingerbread house. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to eat this creation.
That’s all for now– I hope you enjoyed! If you make a gingerbread house, send photos to the wonderful Diamond at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get her to forward them to me. I love gingerbread houses and photos of them make me very very very happy.
We’re getting farther into the Advent season, guys– finally! Are you excited or what? 😀
