It's Boxing Day!  
Which means HAPPY BIRTHDAY grey_hunter !

For you, a gingerbread hut! Though let me say that this one was a sore disappointment, as it did not collapse ...

I have to ask. What are those silver things making up the path? Nice hut!

silver-coated almonds, an essential part of every Christmas! And thanks!

A gorgeous and inviting path, and then, no door! (Perhaps cutting out a door at this stage would cause collapse!)

Originally the whole thing was intended to collapse before anyone could notice the absence of door! Buggeration! And then I planned to use some squares of Lindt, except J had eaten it. Bum!

Why is there no door? :O

It was going to be made of Lindt chocolate. Mr Brammers thought that he would like a snack of chocolate. You can imagine the end of this story ;-)

The hut looks anthropomorphic to me.
Roof = hair, windows = evil eyes, silver path = tongue to trap the unwary traveler! >=D

Even dodgier, Smarties with the original ADD-inducing food colourings! Last year's had M&M's, it's the one case where I think the American version is tastier than the British as the American candy shell isn't so chemically.

I LOVE the face idea! Next year I think I will do an evil hut, thanks for the brilliant suggestion!

Hee, you're welcome =)

Its beautiful.

For house collapsing, my suggestion - get out the humidifier and put it on full bore in the room - instant humidity = collapsing ginger bread house :)

Thank you!

Obviously, it's a wizard's hut, since the only way to get in is to Apparate or Floo. :) I hope it tasted good. (Do you usually eat these?)

Did you bake the gingerbread yourself?

It looks cool by the way! Maybe it stayed up because this year you were expecting it to collapse.
