Last weekend was the gingerbread house competition, with the amazing creations on display at the Rideau Centre.
Well, I'm guessing they were amazing. I stumbled on this by happenstance two years ago and found beauties like this smartie-extravaganza:
Since then, I have missed the show, finding details of it two days after the masterpieces have been packed up - AGH!
So last night I decided to pay tribute to the event, using the 'build your own gingerbread house kit' B bought us a year or so ago, that had languished in the cupboard.
Step one - improve the structure of the walls by soaking in tea:
Step two - lighten the walls by removing large bite size chunks.
Step three - erm.....erm......enjoy?!
Ho hum.....turns out a gingerbread house won't stand up with only three walls......or only two.....lesson learned. x
