I discovered the most charming holiday book, and I’m excited to share it with you. Easy Gingerbread Houses by Lisa Anderson will inspire even non-bakers to tap their inner edible architect. All of the houses in this book are made with building materials like graham crackers, cookies, ice cream cones, frosting, cereal and candy treats.
The book’s creator Lisa Anderson is also the author of Cupcake Cakes and No-Bake Gingerbread Houses for Kids and she’s an editor, baker and stand-up comedienne.
In addition to icing recipes and building tips, she shares 23 different house designs in this charming book.
Here are a few examples.
Don’t you love this whimsical windmill made with sugar wafer cookies and gumdrop tulips?
Here’s a fun tiki hut topped with a thatched roof made from shredded wheat cereal:
And look at this charming Swiss Chalet, complete with Tootsie Roll window boxes and Smarties roof trim.
