Megan, from Not Martha, is excellent when it comes to devising unusual holiday goodies. This year, her take on a traditional gingerbread house is no exception. She baked up some mini gingerbread houses that fit on the rim of a mug of hot chocolate (or coffee). Although I’ve seen gingerbread competitions with houses almost big enough to live in, these mini houses are just as impressive – and a whole lot cuter!
Megan has pdfs of the patterns she used available if you want to try your hand at making some yourself. It takes a little bit of time and precision to put them together, but it is well worth the effort because the effect is amazing. A batch of these, and a few coffee mugs, and you would have one impressive last minute Christmas gift, too!
