Sample Small Cookie Tray

Found my gingerbread village molds from the late 90's and decided to try making one of the houses. This was my first attempt at building a gingerbread house - and thought it turned half decent the first one.

One more mold to ba

All finished! Including a car out front and SANTA on the roof!!

Decked the halls too - and set up a village in the living room. Took a few days get everything all set up and working but so worth it. If you've been by our place - maybe you noticed the lights on our sign too!

Village complete with skating rinks and a bar!

Our village includes: two skating rinks, my favorite building - the Barley Mow Brewery along with a jeep and motorcycle in the lot, sleigh repair shop, hardware store, railway station, post office, sweet shop next to Santa's workshop, along with a corvette, a couple of deer, and a hunter in a tree stand. We got some great gifts from family and friends for holiday decorating next year.
