We love ginger, we love bread, we love gingerbread and we love getting our “craft on”. Even before kids, my husband and I (actually mostly my husband – I’m a bit terrified of pastry) went all out and made a gingerbread house replica of his family’s barn.
This year the children and I were honoured to judge the gingerbread competition over at the Christmas Festival at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. The houses are all available for sale and the proceeds of the sale go to support Housing Families, an organization that is working hard to end homelessness. Here is some of the exquisite work we were able to see. We even took inspiration from each of the houses to try this year when we build our own.
