Halloween! Creepy Gingerbread House

I've never made a gingerbread house from scratch before, and this year I aspire to make a gingerbread My House (that is, I'm going to design a gingerbread house to look like the one I live in). Before I embark on this challenge later in the year though, last night I decided to make a more standard, smaller one to get the feel for using royal icing and structure. And since it was Halloween, I decided to make a spooky house- more specifically one with a nod to the house belonging to the wicked witch from Hansel and Gretel.

Aww, look at how cute and inviting it is! Let's go visit...

Amazing what the right sort of lighting can do, right?

'Nibble, nibble, like a mouse, who's been nibbling at my house?'

Today I respectfully deconstructed the house, to happily feed my family with a nice cup of tea.
