It’s that time of the year again when we are all bound by the beautiful aroma of turkey, pumpkin pie, football the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and then some. (but not necessarily in that order). Then for some of us, the madness of black Friday.
This year thanksgiving I will be at my cousin’s place. I will be bringing over a pumpkin pie, green bean casserole and this cookie doll house for my cousin’s six year old daughter who is so cute by the way. I was going to get her a toy but then I figured this would be way better. Gingerbread houses are really all the rage during the holidays and I absolutely love it. I wanted to give this a different twist for thanksgiving and thought this rendition would be pretty sweet.
Making this was not complicated at all but it does takes up a fair amount of time. I added some doll house furniture to complete the look. There is a dresser, a china cabinet, grandfather’s clock, a dining table with a whole roasted turkey and some holiday cookies, and of course a little puppy and his dog dish. I used tinted royal icing for hold it all together. All the cookies are hand cut without any molds. Yeah, that was why it took a while.
I gotta say that I had this idea swimming around in my head for a while now and I’m so glad I did it. The end results look just adorable and I can’t wait to bring this over for thanks giving tomorrow. I hope she likes it. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
