A Gingerbread Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft & Wizardry

November 12, 2013


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.

    Fondant is cheating and lazy. Gingerbread houses are as much about a sense of fantasy or realism as they are collage and artistry. This seems to lack in that category, though masterfully constructed.

    fondant is lazy? are you serious? not only does it take skill, finesse and patience to master the art of fondant but the possibilities of what you can create with it are endless, and I agree with Joe, you must be fun at parties!

    Gingerbread houses are "about" whatever the fuck the creator wants them to be "about." What are you, the gingerbread police? You must be fun at parties.

    for me they're about the younger brother eating the delicious cookie walls (and plucking all but the weird clove flavored gumdrops) and blaming you when your sister gets mad about the thing she worked all day on to make pretty not even lasting to Christmas
