Chicken Coops Made Of Gingerbread!

Every year I make a gingerbread house. I finished today!

Front view. The windows are made by making hard candy and pouring them into the window spaces.
Side view.


Close up of the chicken coop. Of course I have a chicken coop!

Ooooo, nice work on the roof and how about that pretzel fence! Love the little chicken coop and chicken too! Next week, I'm doing a 3-part blog post on GB houses I've helped decorate over the years. They're so much fun!

Wow, your gingerbread house is amazing!
I have a friend who has about 50 nativities. I am sure your mom's collection is wonderful. I wouldn't have room to have so many, but I wouldn't mind finding a couple more.

This is great and you have so much detail. I have seen many store ordered GB's and their windows were left with the cardboard showing. You have surpassed them.

You are amazing

I just have to send a link to your blog to my niece Mandy. She is gonna die when she sees this. she has a thing for chicken coops.

When my Mother moved to Idaho from Nebraska as a child the family actually lived in a brand new chicken coop. My grandmother made curtains and made it a home for her family :)

Thanks for making me smile

A gingerbread house with a chicken coop! How fun this is...

When I was young my mother used to make gingerbread house each year at Christmas time, with lots of candy and frosting. But one year the whole family happened to get the flu, and for some reason we all associated it with that candy house - and my mother never made one again!
