ginger 2010 – house #3

The third submission for Ginger 2010 comes from my sister, Hadley. It was accompanied with the following description: “gingerbread fairy dwelling with deluxe, barn-style dog house. 100% edible, including waste matter.

Yup. You can eat that poop by the doghouse. The yellow snow too.

This house is a masterpiece. Look at that little shovel, the jelly bean masonry, and the stone wall. This is how you do it, people. What fairy wouldn’t want a perfect little dog house in the side yard? A veritable cornucopia of building supplies have merged to create a crib any pixie would be proud to call home. And did you notice the candles in the side window? Brilliant!

    The pink candied sugar was brought from France and applied with tweezers. Which is when I decided that I really ought to start dating again.

    Tis a fairyland house. Hansel and Gretel would not have been able to resist. And the dog house is exquisite. To think that you have had no prior experience with decorating! But then again, as Dorothy Parker said to a friend who had recently given birth, “I always knew you had it in you.”

    Um… wow. See this is why I didn’t enter, can’t compete. I would have just ended up with iced children and jelly beans where you don’t want them. Which is most places.

    Perfect for the diabetic shut-in. Gets my vote.

      Dear Michael,

      Did you actually vote? Don’t let Hadley down. She’ll do stuff to you. And not the nice stuff you’re thinkin’ about.
