GINGERBREAD HAUNTED HOUSE GONE BAD

When bloggers fail at gingerbread haunted houses

Believe it or not…

Bloggers ARE NOT perfect!

I know it’s hard to envision your favorite Pollyanna blogger creating something only a 2 year old would love, but it happens… a Iot. We are the masters of starting over until it’s right. The push everything out of the way to get the shot-ers. We cater to the Pinterest crowd because it pays the bills.

Meh.

Take this Gingerbread Haunted House for example. Everything starts off peachy keen with this spectacular Haunted House Cookie Cutter Set and baking supplies, right? WRONG!

How to get your gingerbread haunted house started

After I baked this gingerbread haunted house kit I was thinking, ‘Heck ya, man! I’m about to own this project and, as a result, the pinter-verse!’ {Insert evil laugh}

And then my kid ate part of the roof.

Womp!

I think to myself, ‘Whateves, I got this. All I have to do is ‘stage’ the picture so it hides the missing panel and BOOM… baller status!’

Except I couldn’t figure out how to get the gingerbread haunted house to stay together long enough for the icing to dry. So what does a problem solving gal like myself do? I stuck toothpicks in the walls!

Genius!

No, not really genius.

“Well, heck!”

I ended up grabbing casserole dishes and that worked just fine.

Oh, and frosting this bad devil.

HAHAHA

Oy!

I don’t even know where to start describing the icing madness. Sigh…

This was the point I said to myself, ‘Eff this project. Martha Stewart can use this as her example of why bloggers are not experts in the realm of food.’

I was over it.

Tip: Don’t do anything I did and your gingerbread haunted house will look beautiful!
