Gingerbread, et al

| | Comments (0)

Tomorrow the official gingerbread that will construct the frames of the Moose Lodge for the Chocolate Moose's entry in the NYC gingerbread contest will be baked. Then Suzanne and I are off on a frenzied schedule to put the creation together. It is being delivered to Chelsea Market this Thursday. Yikes!!! (We hope to take some time out to have lunch and visit the FoodTV studios and more that are housed there.

In preparation for the satisfying and (satisfyingly) tedious work involved, I have started making the frame for a graham cracker candy house at my home this evening. The tween and I have traditionally made one every year, and this will certainly get my juices flowing for the much more detailed work I will be doing for Suzanne's masterpiece. We use a cardboard frame at my house, whereas Suzannes' will be wood, and I don't prefer to bother with gingerbread, so graham crackers cut to fit are my perfect solution. This year the Tween is full of ideas, so I hope to be the better mother who lets her run with those. "Good luck with that", I tell myself!!!

Stay tuned for photos...
