Our fourth entry comes from Jo-Anne and Kate. Yah. Kate from the gnome tutorial. Turns out she likes gingerbread houses too. This entry makes my gingerbread house look like total crap. No lie. My house looks like the crack den that might be located down the street this one – the kind of house that would bring the resale value of this beauty way down. In the email accompanying their photos, the ginger artists note that the house: was inspired by an antique white tin mansion tree ornament.

Look at this thing! It’s huge!

Look at the mini-marshmallows. Look at the little nonpareils carefully placed by each marshmallow. The perfect little windows. The trees. The manicured yard. The piped details. The vestibule! Magnificent.

Enough said.

    Like, damn it, it’s really good. Not damn it to a house fire or failed building inspection.

    Ah, a fine example of Georgian Ginger circa 1782. A fine home for any aspiring ginger family containing a merchant banker and a servant or two. That is the sort of class I would expect in an English gingerbread house. I would like to invite Karen to be an honorary English artiste, she will be quite at home among the villages of England’s rolling hills. Rather.
