This Year's Gingerbread House

I have an obsession with this house off the Highway near the town of Dundalk. I just love photographing it:
And this year I've decided to make a pattern of it and make it into my new, official, gingerbread house pattern.

That's right. Gingerbread. Here it is, undecorated and suffering a bit from "icing was too thick" syndrome. I almost cried trying to squeeze it through the pastry bag tip. I bought the powdered stuff you just add water to, and I think there might be a misprint. I ended up adding 2 more mL of water and it worked a little better.

I'll thin the icing mixture out a bit more to adhere the candy decorations. But for now, this is how she looks!
