The Gingerbread Hut!


...each year our daughter....neviepiecakes ... makes us a gingerbread house for Christmas...
I can hardly bear to eat them...so much work and thought goes into each one.



This year she has excelled all expectations with...
...a gingerbread fisherman's hut fully equipped with lobster pots, a little fishing boat and a driftwood Christmas tree covered, of course, in snow...


...I love... love it...so what am I to do?
 ...it is truly a piece of edible sculpture...
...but she tells us to eat it and not to be so "precious"....


...look on the door ...a blackboard telling you that fresh fish has been caught and is there for the buying.


...and behind the snow laden driftwood tree ...a pile of lobster pots await the fisherman ...ready for the outing the next day....
...oh now I'm getting carried away!!

I just had to take lots of pics ...because the gingerbread is as good as the design...so there is no way that it is going to last forever...
...as Marie Antionette once didn't say...

"Let them eat cake"
