If you are new to the blog, you may have missed Marketman’s mini-obsession with gingerbread houses. It’s been an annual tradition in our home to make gingerbread houses ever since we had the kid, now teen… This year we are running a bit late, but the teen is doing her gingerbread house soon. It’s a simple affair this time around, more socialized housing than fantastical castle. But for those of you who wish to make your own and can’t navigate my search function to older posts, here are some links to previous posts on gingerbread, and Marketman’s modified recipe that holds up reasonably well in Manila’s ultra-humid weather:
