This is the gingerbread Hogwarts built by Cherry Bay Cakery using a bunch of gingerbread, royal icing, and over 50-pounds of fondant. It took over 100 hours to complete, so it was definitely already stale by the time it was finished. But would that stop me from taking a bite? Yes, I'm not a heathen. I remember when I was growing up though I had a younger cousin (who prefers to remain anonymous but whose name is Graham) who would eat the stale cookie ornaments and strings of popcorn his family hung on their Christmas tree. Plus another time we were playing a board game and somebody made him laugh so hard he shot Coke out his nose. Not a little either, like most of a can. Then he licked some of it off the board. I quit after that. Weird little kid.
Keep going for a couple more shots.
Thanks to A and Charlotte, who heard there was actually a fourth little piggie who built his house out of gingerbread and died from heart disease caused by diabetes.
