Gingerbread houses

We had fun making gingerbread houses with my Mom and Dad when they visited us at the end of November!

We used graham wafers for the houses and then gum drops, gummi bears, pretzels, and jelly beans for decorations. I made a butter icing first but it was hard to stick the walls together so then I made a royal icing (with meringue powder) and that seemed to work better. We all agreed though that the butter icing tasted better when you needed to lick it off your fingers :)
