​She didn't offer Buddy to me so I had to find and raise 2 cats of my own. Oh the sacrifices we make for gingerbread coops, lol. Hope you're stocked up on Amaretto B!

 

As for the picture of your GB coop...I was verrrrrrrrrrrry tempted to use a photo of your first "entry" last year. Who could forget this??

I meant to say:  Buddy can help with ideas, like a Cat Consultant -  but his prices are embarrassingly high :D

Leftover :lau  Now do you really have left over candy?  If you do, then next year buy only what YOU like:)

Graham crackers do work, but be forewarned...you do need to attach them to some sort of framework.  Otherwise the combination of wet icing and the weight of the decorations will collapse it almost before you can pour another soda!  (or Amaretto, if you build like I do!)

 

In mine for last year (thank you for using it on the rule post, @N F C) I used a wooden tissue box found in the craft section of a local store and "glued" the graham crackers to that with icing.  Of course, I didn't do that until I'd suffered two collapses - one was the gingerbread coop and other was me!

 

The frame behind the graham crackers was the only way to keep it together....well, until it met with a catastrophe of epic proportions and crashed off the table. 

:thumbsup  Even my graham cracker chicken ramp had to be propped up.
