Gingerbread Ahoy!

As some of you may remember, one of our holiday traditions is visiting the local Gingerbread Gallery.  And this year, as usual, we were not disappointed by either the artistry or the amazing aroma.
 
This year we were greeted by a tall mast ship.

A lovely mill.

 
The North Pole. 

And of course, gingerbread houses.


However does one choose a favorite!  There were SO many beautiful creations to see--I wish my camera's batteries hadn't pooped out right in the middle of our tour so I could have shown you some more.  But at least you get the idea AND I still got photos of my absolute favorites this year.
 
Anyhoo, it was a difficult choice, but the spaghetti "rope," fondant "sails," and jumping dolphins clinched the deal for me--the ship got my vote!
 

 
I think in the end my family was split. Two votes for the ship and two votes for the lovely green gingerbread house!  And, of course, after smelling all of these sweet creations we got hungry.  So we left with two BIG gingerbread men to split between the four of us and savor with our mid-afternoon tea (although we just skipped the tea yesterday and enjoyed the gingerbread!).

  4. It's just amazing to me that all the bits and bobs of every one of these "houses" is made of something edible--that's the rule!
