Disney Little Mermaid Gingerbread House

Wednesday, May 2, 2018

It's no secret I love making gingerbread houses. 
Today I dove into the deep blue ocean and dug up this beautiful Little Mermaid House. It even has bubbles and all.
As you all know, it was a labor of love to put this together and I'm super happy with it. It's magical, with so many cute details. Which is your favorite?
