Will someone please pat me on the back for this? Thank You! This is the first gingerbread house I ever did and I think it came out pretty damn good. I would never have the attention span to do some thing like this but for some reason I was able to pull it off yesterday. Yes, it came in a kit that you just had to piece together and decorate but I still think it kicks ass. The hardest part of building this was figuring out how to do the icicles. The trick is to "SQUEEZE AND PULL AWAY, SQUEEZE AND PULL AWAY, SQUEEZE AND PULL AWAY".
