Gingerbread houses - fun for all

So Dale Berra's Girlfriend (DB~) proposed an idea during the snow-filled weekend last weekend...she went to Michael's and got 2 gingerbread house kits for us to make. Of course, as with just about everything between us, it turned into a competition on who could make the better gingerbread house.

These things took a long time to make! You had to give the icing 1 hour time to set up for the walls and front pieces, then another hour for the roof. We gave each other 1 hour to decorate, separated by a makeshift wall at the kitchen table of course, so there was some real investment in these things.

As you can see from the picture, my chimney with smoke icing coming out of it (not to mention the icicles off the roof and the bushes with holly) were no match for her precision craftmanship and attention to detail.

She won fair and square. And what better place to say it then a little-viewed blog under my alias.

Just kidding, did a great job and are awesome. Totally.

  1. I'm copying and pasting the "she won fair and square part" and saving it for a rainy day! For the record, the digital score was 13-2. However, it's really funny that our door knobs are the same color! ~
