Description: Gingerbread! How the spicy smell of it -- fresh out of the oven -- fills the house and delights the nose. It's no wonder that Hansel and Gretel were entranced by the Witch's Gingerbread House! You can build that house -- and so many more -- with the variety of recipes, clear directions, full-color photographs and charming drawings in this collection of gingerbread architecture.
Chapters filled with patterns, decorating techniques, and baking information are all here for you to make an Austrian chalet, a candy cane cottage, a steeple church, a lovely Nativity scene, an enchanted castle, Santa's North Pole home, and even Santa's sleigh. You can make a simple A-frame chalet or a whole winter village -- Christmas tree ornaments, too!
More than 16 luscious projects will fill your home with the fragrance, taste, and homey decorative charm that only gingerbread can give to holiday festivities. Also included are a history of gingerbread spice, cookies and breads, and tips on gingerbread decorations that children can do to join in the fun of gingerbread building.
