Winter Holiday Fun from White Trash Mom – Gingerbread Double Wide

This guest post is from a dear friend of mine, Michelle aka White Trash Mom!  She’s one of the most funniest, real people ever and I love her.  If you haven’t read The White Trash Mom Handbook: Embrace Your Inner Trailerpark, Forget Perfection, Resist Assimilation into the PTA, Stay Sane, and Keep Your Sense of Humor, you need to.  I had the pleasure of meeting her at Blogher this summer and she was a ton of fun.  So buy her book and make her recipe, which is from the book by the way!

Cooking with the White Trash Mom

The best part about these recipes is that they are EASY to make.  If a recipe is hard, I could not do it. I am that bad of a cook. These recipes will bring you tons of fun and enjoyment and are a great addition at any gathering.

Winter Holiday Fun-Gingerbread Double Wide
Think of it—a double wide that you can eat!


  • 1 box of graham crackers
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • 10 sugar cubes
  • Sprinkle of sugar


Break a graham cracker in two.  Spread frosting out on a plate, sprinkle with sugar.  Stick 4 sugar cubes in the frosting where the graham crackers can stand on them.  Frost tops of the cubes. Frost the cracker edges and stick lengthwise on top of the frosted sugar cubes, joining the cubes, like glue at the frosted edges.  Let it set for at least 30 minutes.  Frost the top of a second graham cracker, sprinkle with sugar. “Glue” it down to the top of the cracker trailer with a glob of frosting.
Your double wide is complete and ready to eat!

    This is really funny! The only thing I would have done though is taken the tired off of the car. Don’t know how easy that would be though. I’d give it to my 2yo. She’d figure it out for sure! LOL Thanks for sharing! :)

    You should add a snowman! With bare patches around it. Just use a frosted nutter butter, and use some cocoa powder or hot chocolate for the bare spots! :) Love it!
