every good tea party needs a centrepiece

A few weeks ago when I was taking my cake decorating course, each of us were given a gingerbread house because they had some kicking around after Christmas that expire in June.  Kate and Will had planned on making a gingerbread house in December and never got around to it, so I suggested that the three of us make a Valentine's day house. 

Kate and I went to Bulk Barn (love) and grabbed some v-day candies and the three of us got to work.

This is the nicest gingerbread house I've ever made, and I was super excited about how cute it was.  Kate's fondant bay window really makes the whole thing that much better. 

Plus, I got to put some of my newly acquired decorating skills to good use.  It made a beautiful centrepiece at the v-day tea and everyone was quite impressed!


  1. Your centerpiece is cute. I love the pink and brown together. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my cheesecake bites.
    Ps- Every Wednesday I feature recipes from all around blogland. I'd love for you to stop by.

  2. Your mother and I think that the cake is fabo! That is a 60's remark, we were both there in the 60's.

  3. Also I might consider putting in a bay window if it was made of icing and chocolate.

  4. Adorable, I want to move into that house and eat it! Fax moi!
