Hocus Pocus Gingerbread House for Halloween

Tuesday, October 17, 2017



I put a spell on you and now you are mine!

And

Tonight we fly. So let's go. 

I'm a little behind sharing this fun project on the blog. I wasn't going to make Hocus Pocus inspired gingerbread house but Sofia, my friend suggested it and I went with it. Aren't you glad I did?!
I decided to use a store bought kit instead of baking my own. You, however, if you wish can go ahead and bake your own house panels and use my design for a reference. I felt a bit lazy so I went with the pre-made house.






To make Hocus Pocus Gingerbread House you need:

Tools:

I used store bought gingerbread house kit or you can also  make your own
House Panel Templates -optional, if making your own cookie panels

Small Spatula

Recipes
Gingerbread Dough for Centerpieces - if making your own house panels
