Our second entry comes from Claire. The note accompanying her work of ginger read that the house was “complete with sled and log pile.”

Uh, Claire? I’m not seeing the log pile. Or… the sled.

Wait. Are those candy canes welded with icing the sled? Claire? Where is the log pile? Is that ginger mass at the side of the house meant to represent logs? A log pile if you will? Claire?

Admittedly, Claire’s statement (“complete with sled and log pile”) has me somewhat… confused, but I think we can agree that this wee house is a work of sugary art. Look at the use of icing, candy corn and sprinkles. The confection pathway is perfectly lovely. The candied roof is charming. This humble abode truly looks good enough to eat. I think I’ll start with the log pile… wait… I can’t find it…

(I love this house.)

    Where did she get those trees?!?

      I know! Candy cane trees! What will they think of next?

      And can you imagine eating one of them?

    I could imagine this house in Narnia. Sweet.

    I think Claire did a stirling job especially considering the children who are clearly in the house, in which case you are lucky you didn’t end up with a picture of a woman eating icing out of a bowl and crying. Maybe that’s just me.

    Marvelous house of ginger!

      Agreed! I see that kid looming in the background too. The house is just what a ginger house is supposed to be – laden with candy and icing!

    I love this house. Nothing too tidy, lots going on, looks delicious.

      I must say, it does look very tasty. I think it’s the rivers of icing – like icicles. Makes me want to take a bite right out of that roof!

    I admit – the log pile didn’t make it into a photo – OOPS! The “candy canes welded with icing” is the sled, yes, and the “ginger mass” are TREES! I was pretty pumped about them…:)

      I feel much better. Now I can stop looking for the log pile. So can 2.0.
