We’d like to thank those of you that shared photos of your gingerbread creations with us. Feast your eyes on our local gingerbread talent!
The photo above was submitted by Amber Hancy. What started as a house turned into a village, complete with a nativity scene and stained glass candy windows. She made a plan and took three weeks of evening work to complete the project. Everything is edible, including the snow.
Amber wrote,”This is what makes the holiday so special to me, and I hope that everyone will enjoy a little sweetness in their lives this holiday season.”
The next house was made by Christine Chandler and her two six-year-old boys.
This edible treat comes from Scotty Lawson. He said it was “Madison’s first try.” Could have fooled me!
A Cook and Her Books sent this photo our way. She said her sister-in-law brings a gingerbread house each Thanksgiving. They add more candy to the house, which serves as a centerpiece throughout December.
Emily Wert shared a little Hobbit fun with her house. She made this Hobbiton for her Hobbit party on the movie’s opening weekend. Look for the Green Dragon Pub, Bag End Hill, and the Mill with a water wheel and root beer candy barrels. She told us, “Chocolate rocks line the poured boiled sugar syrup river, and sesame seed paths wander over the shredded coconut grass that covers the ground and hill. The melted hard candy windows are lit from within. Everything (except the interior lights) is completely edible – we’re gingerbread purists.” What detail!
Melissa Hogan submitted this house made by her daughter. Looks tasty!
This one comes from Shinj Pal. This family worked together to make their house.
And now, drumroll please… the winner of the drawing is… Scotty Lawson. Scotty, if you’ll email me your address, we’ll get your prize out to you.
