If an enormous gingerbread house seems a little intimidating, Amazon has the Nordic Ware Gingerbread House Bundt Pan on sale right now. All you’ll need to do is bake the gingerbread and sprinkle a little powered sugar over the top and you’re done.
I think I went into insulin shock just looking at these!
