The Top Spots to Decorate a Gingerbread House

What feels more festive than decorating a gingerbread house or gingerbread man during the holidays? Or if you’re like us, you attempt to decorate, but instead eat all the toppings before they make it on the house. (No shame.) If this fun-filled activity is something you and the family want to take part in this season, check out our list of places around DFW where you can sit down and get those gingerbread décor juices flowing.
