Then when my mother bought this kit and it turned out to be a WILTON gingerbread house kit, I was really excited. After all, I was fourteen now, could pipe fairly decently, and I would follow ALL the directions.
And then I tried.
I got out the directions, stared at the box for a little bit, and pictured the finished house in my head. It would be the perfect post for my blog! Everyone would just laud my skills! I picked up the piping bag that came with the kit (I was thrilled over that) and turned to the house, my head overflowing with confidence, and began to decorate.
Or, would you call that.... throw together?
And this is what came out.
So, my piping skills weren't as extensive as I had foolishly imagined.
These are painful.
Don't let them fool you; they look fruity, sugary, and amazingly delicious. They aren't.
Don't say 'Yum', say 'Um'!
Now these were pretty amazing.
I had a few helpers. :D

Me and Babycakes, the inspiration for the blog name!
That gingerbread house is so..... sloppy. I guess, my skills are the same as when I as six. :D So there it is.
We never ate it. After a few days of looking at it, it got thrown away.
Well, Babycakes, I hope you all had a merry Christmas filled with exciting presents, treats, and fun times with family. I know I did! :D (More about that later!)
