Gingerbread Train Wreck

gingerbread trainWhen a craft or recipe is especially challenging, many of us turn to pre-made kits to simplify the process. This gingerbread train kit by Create-a-Treat makes the complicated task of assembling an ornately decorated cookie choo-choo practically effortless with pre-baked gingerbread pieces, icing and candy.

Don’t have a steady hand for holding the train together while it dries? No problem! Per Amazon, the “patented E-Z Build Tray makes assembly simple, clean, and fast.”

So, obviously, nothing could possibly go wrong.

    Haha. I can never do gingerbread kits. Once year, my best friend and I tried and it was a disaster, so instead we made an “abstract gingerbread art park” and had a ribbon cutting ceremony for it.
