This Christmas I was going to be all creative and make a non-traditional gingerbread house, one that models sustainability, like installing solar panels for my gingerbread family. Apparently though, I'm not the only one who thinks of such things. I did some digging around, and lo-and-behold, its been done. For instance, Chef Deden Putra beat me to it, with his recreation of Essex House in New York City.
Tomorrow I'll be taking over the kitchen to bake and build my own gingerbread design!
