Your kids will squeal with delight when they see what you’ve got cooking up in the kitchen this holiday season: their very own Angry Bird Christmas gingerbread bird house. This is the perfect holiday project and the kids will get a total kick out of creating the characters from purchased fondant. (In fact, you just might get them to set the game down for a few hours).
