Last year we made a gingerbread house and this here we decided to go a step ahead and make a ginger bread village. I am no baker and so we decided to get the kits that are available at Target.
The kit comes with 5 structures for you to decorate along with ready made icing which I loved, a variety of candy to decorate and colored sugar to add some sparkle. It also include shredded coconut for adding artificial snow.
I had so much fun making this with my daughter! I know you see just 4 houses instead of 5. That is because we happened to break the top shop. We have Santa's house, the bakery, the candy shop and the chalet. We used fruit roll for the roof of the candy shop and I used acrylic paints to create scroll designs on the house. The road is made with cocoa puffs.
One more thing. I just added a facebook fan page. You can now follow the blog using google connect, facebook or twitter.
