Gingerbread House

In addition to making pepper jelly today, we built the gingerbread house in the picture above. Random House recently published an entire book on gingerbread houses (The Gingerbread Architect: Recipes and Blueprints for Twelve Classic American Homes) and in honor of our friend Phyllis we decided our first house would be in the Cape Cod style. The house was a lot of work but also a lot of fun and a great family project.

I am IMPRESSED! You know now you'll never be able to throw that beauty out, but must shellac it and keep it for all future holidays. xoxo Beth
