Use hard candies to create a super impessive colorful glass window effect. Cupcakes, Diy, Gingerbread House Designs, Gingerbread House Template, Gingerbread House Decorations, Gingerbread House, Christmas Gingerbread House, Make A Gingerbread House, Gingerbread House Parties

Put hard candies such as Jolly Ranchers in the "window" holes of the cookies and bake them for a few minutes. The candy will melt and leave the illusion of colorful windows. If the candy doesn't completely spread, use a little toothpick to gently push the extra sugar to the window edges.

Today we spent our morning around the table with my mother-in-law making gingerbread houses. With graham crackers, homemade cement icing, bags of bulk candies and Christmas music in the background, we created and munched and then munched a little more. Isn't taste testing all of the house parts part of the process?
