Look at the fancy-shmancy work on this gingerbread house! We used uncooked rice for snow so it would cover up the aluminum foil base. Of course, then you need a secure fence around the perimeter to keep the rice in. Hence, all the marshmallows.
My favourite features of this house are the pine trees, made out of inverted ice cream cones covered in green icing and green froot loops. Guess who picked every green froot loop out of the friggin' cereal box? Note as well the Jersey Milk chocolate front door and the sprinkles 'n twizzlers sidewalk. Also, our snowman was smaller and more sober than before, with a jaunty peppermint and gumdrop hat.
This series concludes tomorrow with Our. Best. Gingerbread. House. EVER!
