Gingerbread House : Phase 1

Construction is underway for the gingerbread house!

We finally had our first snowfall and that spurred me into action. My right-hand girl, Miranda, was there to help me and we spent a relaxed afternoon listening to Christmas music and playing with ca
ndy. Snow fell all day long and we were pretty content as we chatted and got in touch with our creative sides.
"I don't have a creative side" said Miranda, but it was obvious that she does (all Wimbushes do!)

by her expert handiwork. I was happy to have her around to help with all the 'masonry'.

As we worked and munched, each sugar high was higher and each crash was lower until we finally said “eno
ugh!” and left the rest for another day.
Here are some photos of the process.

Noah checking to make sure the dough is coming together just right. Can you tell this is a pre-haircut shot? :)

Cutting out the pieces of gingerbread.

Raising the walls. They are burnt on purpose to dry them out as much as possible so they don't soften and fold.

And here we have the shell together and it's going to dry overnight.
In case you can't tell, it's going to be a church. Stop by soon to see the finished product!

Will you eat your masterpiece once it's done? That's always my dilemma...

Aimée said...

I won't, but I'll probably give it to the kids at church or relatives. It's made to be eaten and I loved watching youngsters tear into previous houses...I will always remember the first time I saw a house made out of candy-I was about 6-and I wasn't alowed to touch it or eat it. That experience scarred me very deeply. Very.

Miranda said...

eat it!! Are you nuts? I worked my fingers to the bone for this..... I still have a kink in my neck!

Aimée said...

Ahem. I believe that I hold the deed to this property. Sorry, it's for consuming.
Too bad about your neck! ;)
