Gingerbread House eBook Helps Build Shelter for Homeless Gingerbread People
Create a sweet winter wonderland in your home with the gingerbread house ideas, craft projects, and recipes in 23 Gingerbread House Designs and Recipes, the latest eBook from FaveCrafts.com and Recipelion.com!
October 28, 2011—Northbrook, IL— The Christmas season is all about friends, family, and the joy of giving. Though it may be wonderful to stuff ourselves silly and bask in a sea of Christmas gifts in our nice warm homes, we mustn’t forget those who are less fortunate, who may not have a cozy home in which to spend Christmas. Millions of gingerbread people are created each year, but the gingerbread housing crisis causes them to live tragic, homeless lives. Do your part to better the lives of all those homeless gingerbread people by building a gorgeous gingerbread cottage, castle or mansion with 23 Gingerbread House Designs and Recipes, the latest eBook from FaveCrafts.com and Recipelion.com!
Gingerbread recipes first spread throughout Western Europe in the eleventh century, and the first known gingerbread houses came from Germany, where spiced cakes were shaped to reflect certain values, and a sweet treat was a rare holiday indulgence. According to World Record Gingerbread Houses, the spiced cookie houses became iconic once they were featured in the Grimm brothers’ fairy tales like Hansel and Gretel. In celebration of this tradition, Germans still build “Hexenhaeusle,” or witches’ houses from large pieces of gingerbread, or “lebkuchen.” 23 Gingerbread House Designs and Recipes can help you create your own version of this holiday tradition by using all of your crafty skill to design and build a gingerbread structure of your choice.
This free 60-page eBook presents three different gingerbread house designs, from a traditional German Gingerbread House (pg. 6), a festive Classic Christmas Gingerbread House (pg. 13), and a special guide that helps you Design Your Own Gingerbread House (pg. 19)! 23 Gingerbread House Designs and Recipes also includes a section designed specifically for crafters, including projects designed for the gingerbread enthusiast like a Gingerbread Ornament (pg. 48) and a hand-painted Gingerbread Birdhouse (pg. 36). Meanwhile, dine on delights like Gingerbread Cut Out Cookies for Christmas (pg. 52) and Apple and Ginger Crumble (pg. 58) from the recipe section!
Have fun with the kids and let your creative juices help you create the perfect Christmas creation with the help of this incredible eBook!
