A tiny gingerbread house that perches on the edge of your mug
A quick update! This winter I’ve collaborated with Brit+Co on a DIY kit for my tiny gingerbread houses that includes 3d printed cookie cutters! It’s available now, go have a look. These won’t be available after Christmas of 2014 so grab them now if you’re interested. I made tiny gingerbread houses that are meant to be perched on the edge of a mug of hot chocolate. I had been thinking about those sugar cubes that hook on the rim of a teacup earlier this month, and I was also thinking about 3-D cookies and how they fit together and figured it would be pretty neat to make cookies that hang on the edge of a mug. I made a few versions to figure out how to make one that wasn’t so top heavy that it would flip off the mug, and how small I could get away with and still fit on both large and small cups. I’ve made a PDF pattern of gingerbread house pieces which you can open or download right here. I used the Gingerbread Snowflake and the Royal Icing recipes from marthastewart.com.
