I know it's been a couple of weeks almost, but here were the completed Gingerbread Houses
(front and back views)
Some of these are still a little bare, as a couple of the students were not done decorating, but I had to snap a picture before I forgot. For the record, none of them collapsed and much candy was enjoyed by all.
As a tip for anyone making gingerbread houses in the future - please, bake and then let all the pieces cool - and then wrap and FREEZE all the pieces. Then, at your leisure, buy candy, prepare a foil covered platform, make icing, and put together frozen houses. They stay sturdy and come together much quicker if they are frozen solid.
