Mini Gingerbread House Collaboration with Haniela's


I bought THIS mini gingerbread house cutter last year after someone shared it on facebook (I think).  If I recall correctly, the sharer was Sugarbelle. :)
Anyway, when I saw it, I knew I had to have it!  I bought my friend, Hani, one too, and she invited me to collaborate with her in making our mini gingerbread house creations.

Haniela's makes amazing cookies, and one of her specialties seems to be gingerbread creations, which includes houses, whether they are mini and simple, or bigger and detailed (even 3D), they're always beautiful!
I adore her "mug hugger" cookies for this collaboration!


I decided to make a snow globe of sorts, but I had a bit of a difficult time photographing through the glass. I think I need a new camera and/or lens (I'll blame it on the equipment, haha)! 
I hope Santa is listening. :)

 

So...I brought it out of the jar and made a little wintry scene in a mug. 
I guess our collaboration could be mini gingerbread houses in/on mugs! :)

I can't believe that with all the photos I took of this mini house that I did not take any of the house in production!?!  

Gingerbread House details
I used this gingerbread recipe and this royal icing recipe (white and tinted red, as "glue" and decoration).
Jumbo confetti sprinkles were used for the roof awning(?) detail and gumdrops on the roof ridge.
Jumbo sprinkles were used for the tree, connected with a toothpick, 
The toadstool is made with a jumbo gumdrop and a regular size gumdrop, also connected with a toothpick. The white dots are royal icing.
The wood stack is cinnamon sticks, bound with twine.
I also used small confetti sprinkles to decorate the house.

Make your own gingerbread house, mini or big, and 
Have fun!

    Side note: I just realized the comments I've been leaving on your posts haven't been showing up. Sad face! I'm not using Chrome (switched to Safari) and it seems to work here. The interwebs just keeps confounding me! lol.

  8. So so so cute. Loving them. For some reason I find the tiny ones much cuter than the regular or big gingerbreadhouses. :-)
