    My daughter, age 8, makes a gingerbread house every Christmas. This year she made a replica of our chicken coop. Past projects have included a "Quail Castle", and "Rapunzel's Tower".
    My daughter was artistic director. Wife was architect/chief engineer.

    That is SO cute and very creative. Do the chickies get to help eat it?

    Someone sent me an e-mail of a "Redneck Gingerbread House". It is a trailer, complete with jacked up car in front and a truck with those gigantic wheels parked in the dirt driveway.

    How CUTE! [​IMG] I give that gingerbread coop 10 stars! What a fantastic idea! Now I just want to know where in the world the candy chickens came from. I have to get some of those. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the kind words. The chicks are just marzipan, painted with watercolors. The white ones (silkies) were covered with white glue and rolled in powdered sugar.
