Two blog posts in one night? Of course that could be because I have piles of laundry I’m avoiding but let’s just pretend it’s because I knew you couldn’t live one more minute without seeing my amazing gingerbread train. Sound good?
I put all the extra candies in the caboose. Don't tell Mike (I left the train at his place) but I don't have much faith those candies will be there a week from now haha. Who am I kidding he will probably eat most of the train itself.
Okay I confess, these pictures aren’t actually from when I was working on the train. If they were there would be hundreds of candies
stuffed in my mouth all over the table and streaks of green and white icing on my face.
I have to admit I was pretty happy this year when I realized that at the age of 28 my gingerbread decorating skills are now at that of a 10 year old. Much better than last year’s 5 year old job where most of the icing ended up in my hair and I just ate the candies.
I've seen some pretty amazing gingerbread houses made by super crafty people but who needs homemade gingerbread and colour coordinated candy when you can have a stale gingerbread train from a kit covered with as much candy as humanly possible.
And if this smile doesn't show you how proud I am of this train then nothing will.
