This is what we did yesterday...
Soup cans come in handy, especially if you don't follow directions and mix the icing too runny.
No, it's gingerbread, not cardboard. And that's (runny) icing, not glue.
By the time Mr. Kluges came home, it was dry and sturdy enough to decorate.
(Yeah, I know I'm so glamorous in my old college sweatshirt, but I ended up with all kinds of icing drizzles all over, so that's life. Don't call Trinny and Susannah on me!)
(Ok, do call 'em, 'cuz I'd love finding out what would suit me best and getting a new wardrobe!)
Mr. Kluges helped decorate, too. Finally by this point, Pumpkin had realized that hey, this is CANDY we're using to decorate the house... and it could be EATEN!! I was amazed it had taken that long.
And here it is, our finished product, with the box from the kit in the background. Beautiful, in a made-with-a-three-year-old kind of way, if I do say so myself.
