Considering the Gingerbread House I made with Lady Oyster collapsed in on itself after three hours or so, I’m super impressed with this one that is a replica of Frank Lloyd Wright’s magnum opus, Falling Water.
•It took over 12 hours to design
•It took Brenton and I around 40 hours to build and decorate
•There are around 164 different pieces of gingerbread
•It took roughly 12 square feet of gingerbread dough (that’s four large batches) to make all the walls, floors and roof
•Over 8 bags of powdered sugar were used to make all the frosting
•It took over 40 sleeves of large Smarties which are used to simulate dry stack stone on the building exterior
•The river and water fall are made up of three batches of hard candy
