I saw the Halloween House that Macy’s has by Martha Stewart – it’s $70 and, if I may say so, not nearly as cute as mine!  This was a cinch to make – a basic gingerbread dough that is overcooked so it’s really hard, and then royal icing, colored with black food coloring – and used as glue to attach the candy.  The windows were made with a squeeze tube of decorator’s icing and the faces in the windows, which are hard to see, are sugared candies that I bought at a cake decorating store.  Hey….when your last name is Slaughter then halloween has to be good!
