Check out photos of my gingerbread house this year. Mad props to my girlfriend Rachel for her enormous effort on this project.
This gingerbread house is a replica (with artistic license) of the Queen Anne High School building in Seattle. The original building has 86 windows on the front side alone – the gingerbread version only has 18. This probably disqualifies us from entering the National Historic Register’s Gingerbread House/Gumdrop Nativity Competition. Next year, perhaps we’ll try for a more accurate model. We doubled the gingerbread and icing recipes found here to accommodate the size of the building (
5 feet 17″ wide by 2 feet 10″ tall).
