Halloween Cookie House Fail

Halloween Cookie House Kit

You know how when you see those cool gingerbread house kits at the store you think, “it’s pre-baked!  What could go wrong?”

That’s exactly what Crysta thought when she and her boyfriend attempted to make their very own Halloween pre-baked cookie house.

Who doesn’t want to impress their friends with a professional-looking candy-decorated gingerbread house?  Everyone will ooh and aah at your creative ingenuity!

Well, neither Crysta nor her boyfriend knew how to decorate with icing.  They each took a side and put their cookie decorating skills (or lack thereof) to the test.

It didn’t look like the picture on the box.  Does it ever?  Does it ever?

They worked on it a little bit more until…they gave up and ate it.  Let’s hope no ghosts came out of the “cookie-work” as they munched.

Halloween Haunted House Nailed it


Pumpkin cookie house: nailed it.  Or should we say, ATE IT!?!

    Actually this reminded me I had this great idea of doing a gingerbread pre-made house with my 8 year old niece for the New Year’s dinner, to surprise everyone after we managed to gather people who live oceans across. It seemed easy enough (pre-made, how can that possibly go wrong?). Although it was only a “stick together & decorate” thing, it took us nearly one hour to get it slightly right while our guests were starving. We managed to have it standing long anough to put it on the table and take a picture, after which the house crumbled. This one seems to resist way pass that point so for me it is a great achievement guys! ;)
