I love food art. For that reason I have always wanted to build a gingerbread house. So this year we tried our hand at it for the first time.
Using the King Arthur instructions (available of the internet) as a guide, we built quite a successful first attempt. The stained glass windows are melted candies, the snow coconut, the roof tiles frosted mini wheats. The entire structure is edible, from the homemade gingerbread foundation to the cotton candy smoke from the chimney and the fruit roll up shudders.
Next year I hope to try for something a little more grandiose and artistic.
