Eating your gingerbread creations
by: Kelly

Don't worry, that was just one person's note about not eating their houses. Many (probably most?) people eat their houses. But it does depend on how long you're leaving it out and whether you're protecting it from bugs, dust,...

Those who spend months building and decorating a really grand gingerbread house might never eat it and prefer, instead, to enjoy looking at it out on display for a few months. I've done that and, when I did, I baked a bunch of gingerbread men at the same time so that we'd have something to eat while we admired the house as a decoration. But houses CAN be eaten several weeks (& I've even heard months) after they're created. It's just a matter of keeping them dry and clean.
