Daring Bakers December Challenge: Gingerbread Structures

So instead of a basic gingerbread house I decided to go "all out" though my stomach and my ambitions were beyond me skills and time frame. No matter, four year old Tristan and I had plenty of wholesome farm-to-market fun while building our little Gingerbread Austin Farmer's Market.

Our Ginger Market's fair this week included gummy cherries, sugar plums (for the holidays of course), mallowcreme pumpkins, swedish fish, mini marshmallows and chocolate bits, sugared watermelon slices and olive painted jordan almonds.

The plans that did and did not help...

The December 2009 Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to you by Anna of Very Small Anna and Y of Lemonpi. They chose to challenge Daring Bakers’ everywhere to bake and assemble a gingerbread house from scratch. They chose recipes from Good Housekeeping and from The Great Scandinavian Baking Book as the challenge recipes.
