Halloween Gingerbread House

Halloween Gingerbread Facade by you.

Have you heard of Teresa Layman?

None of my friends or family have, that’s for sure, but to the gingerbread enthusiast, the name is usually familiar.

Who exactly is she?

Only the best gingerbread house author out there!  (Kudos to other authors – there’s lots of other gingerbread talent, but Teresa is the queen in my books).  I have every gingerbread book out there I can get my hands on, and no one tops her yet.  Here’s a small sampling of my book collection:

book collection 1 by you.

Oh boy… it’s out… I’m a bit of a cake/cupcake/cookie/gingerbread house book JUNKIE!!!

Ahem.

Back to Teresa… I’ve even written to her and ended up chatting with her on the phone.  If you’re interested you can read about that post right here.

Like I said, a bit of a junkie.

This Halloween Gingerbread ‘House’ (actually really is a gingerbread ‘facade’), is the second project I made from her book, and as a newbie ‘sugar crafter’ back in 2002 I was pretty satisfied with the results.   (Although it’s not as nice as Teresa’s).   I set it near the door for the trick-or-treaters to see when they came for their candy.  The kids seemed to love it!

Ms. Layman describes how to make every step of this Halloween gingerbread project in her book, Gingerbread for All Seasons.  From the perfect gingerbread recipe, to the ghost templates, to the sugar paste pumpkins; she makes it easy.  If I could do it, anyone can!
