Do you make gingerbread houses around the holidays?

Gingerbread - Golden Gate Bridge 3

I’ve tried a few times in the past, running out of creativity or patience long before it was finished.  But I’ve always loved to see other people’s creations

Now I realize where it all went of awry.  I simply needed friends who are chefs and a much larger Lowe’s budget for building supplies

My goodness, these featured in the Smithsonian Magazine this week.  WOW, they’re nothing short of incredible: The Impressive Results of When You Ask Architects to Build With Gingerbread

While we’re talking houses made of gingerbread

A new Guinness World Record was set on Saturday in Bryan, Texas

Gingerbread - Guinness World Record

The house is 22 feet long, took thousands of pounds of sugar and flour.  Almost a ton of butter and 7,200 eggs

Not to mention it’ll set you back about 36 million calories

(AND .. it can house a family of five)

Happy Christmas Eve!
