Have you started on your entry for the Haunted Gingerbread House Contest? I bought all my supplies last week, and this week I'll be baking and icing.
And look -- Rachel Vincent's running a contest, too! Now you have more chances to win! I can't wait to see what she bakes up this year!
I know hers will be better than mine. I wasn't kidding about my failed previous attempts. The last one I made fell down, so I set up a skeleton to look like a demolition project:
See the piece missing from the roof? And the broken corner that was "glued" back together? The gingerbread came out very soft. But I love the evil grin on the skeleton in the bulldozer and the look of fright on the skeleton on the bicycle at the back.
Here's hoping this year's house turns out better!
