You may remember this No-Bake Haunted Mansion I yakked about here, from the No-Bake Gingerbread Houses site by Lisa Anderson, author of No-Bake Gingerbread Houses for Kids. Well, the author sent me a copy, and I love this darling book so much, I shamelessly requested more for you!

This book is perfect for anyone, young or old, with even a passing fancy in edible crafting. Learn to easily build houses, cottages, castles, huts, bungalows and more using graham crackers, cookies, ice cream cones, waffle bowls and candy. Sure, gingerbread houses are apt as we countdown to Christmas, but the beauty of this book is its year-round appeal. Projects include a fairy tree house, a mermaid palace, a Dutch windmill (with candy tulips!), a big red barn (with sunflowers and sheep!), a Caribbean bungalow, a Tiki hut, an igloo… Just a sampling, all with step-by-step how-tos. And the No-Bake Gingerbread Houses site is full of ideas to get you started.


Leave a comment before Sunday, November 21, midnight EST, and I’ll chose TWO winners randomly to get a copy of No-Bake Gingerbread Houses for Kids.

US addresses only, please!
