Everyone was out shopping the “Black Friday” sales and yes, we were too. We ended up at the Williams-Sonoma store and they had the cutest selections of Gingerbread items from cookware, to spatulas, ornaments, to lots of bakeware. These Gingerbread goodies won’t last long so hurray and get yours now while they are in stock.
‘Tis the season to start making Gingerbread Houses and if you really want to try making something “different” then try making a gingerbread dog house in honor of your beloved dog! I suppose if you search the internet you will find “dog freindly” ingredients to use if the gingerbread house you are making is for a dog to eat but, the ones we are showing you are intended for human consumption only. We actually found an article by the HoustonPress writing of an Annual Christmas Tail Gingerbread Dog House Competition and provided here are photos. Visit Annual Christmas Tail Gingerbread Dog House Competition for more.
This is a gorgeous Gingerbread cupcake creation by Kurt Adler and part of the Gingerbread Kisses Collection. This Gingerbread cupcake house is decorated with lots of pink frosting and sprinkles, candy cane accents, star no top and wreath on door. Gingerbread cupcake house is detailed with LED lights and the entire piece glows like sugar crystals. Would make a wonderful gift or holiday decoration. Please visit here for details.
It’s the time of year we are looking in every corner of any store we go into to find out loved Gingerbread items. Target didn’t let us down in their ornament area!
Houses! Gingerbread Women and Men on baking sheets… all too cute! She has a extra little gingerbread heart on the pan with her and him a colorful star.
We looked online and we couldn’t find them at the Target site so these may be in-store available only. Fingers crossed for you that your local store carries these this year.

I was over on Instructables today. They have a variety of fun Gingerbread cookies and houses that people show how they did the assembly. It’s a great place to see folks being very creative. They are creative both in design and materials used.
Just recently, a post appeared where an individual made a full size kids play house, using a Gingerbread House ornament as the starting point. The group of pictures outlining the steps from ornament to play house make it look easy enough to give it a try. It might be a good idea to draw the little ornament on a piece of grid paper and then redraw on a large grid… or use the company copy machine in magnify mode to bump the little ornament to the size kids will fit in. Most important, it looks like a lot of fun for us… and the kids.
Here is a great way to use up your dinged and chipped teacups and what a better way to recycle and repurpose your vintage and flea market teacups. You can create your own Gingerbread Christmas scene or as Mimi Kirchner, the individual that created the ones pictured here calls them “Gingerbread House Tiny Worlds”. I could not find a pattern (so these might not be simple to create) but someone with some crafting and sewing skills could probably make one in a couple hours. Just think, a Gingerbread House Tiny World in a heirloom vintage teacup would make such a thoughtful handmade Christmas gift and would make an amazing hostess gift especially if you know the hostess’s china pattern of choice and create a Gingerbread Tiny World for her in that her own china pattern. Charming and sweet!!
