What would you do with an extra 16 hours?

Spend more time on the things that matter most.

Is your gingerbread house unique?

Make sure your gingerbread house stands out from the crowd. It can be tempting to go with the classic status quo, but don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Think – tinsel shrubbery, top shelf buttercream landscaping, and a gourmet candy cane entryway.

Give your edible dwelling some curb appeal

Is your frosting job a little wonky? Consider a refresh before peak season. You’ll be amazed at what a fresh coat of icing can do. Make sure to also check the foundation for any signs of cracking or crumbling. Keen gingerbread homeowners will be looking for any signs of collapse.

Is your home up to Christmas Code? 

Be sure that your gingerbread house is following the Christmas Code. For starters, all gingerbread houses must have at least 5 peppermints, 10 gumdrops, and a licorice mailbox. You’ll also need to make sure the chimney is functional and has several coats of icing to keep it well insulated.
