my creative space 'edible art'

Greetings all,
Wow, check this out . . . i've always wanted to have a Gingerbread House to gaze at in the lead up to Christmas.  How about this one??  At Shop Handmade next week . . . so dreamy, from the clever creative Canberrean (by way of Hungary) Erika Lenc.  It even smells amazing!!



 Wrapped up in cello with coordinating ribbon detail.

My Austrian sister-in-law used to make them too, with extreme detail utilising her dental tools.  Funny how being a dentist & mother of 4 put the breaks on making one for everyone in our huge family!!
. . . & for far less cleverness, my new METRIC boy's clothing range is in Shop Handmade now.

My son just didn't feel like modelling, so this will have to do.
Happy Creative Spaces everyone, i'm sewing all day Thursday for a little market on Friday night.  Should be fun!!  Love Posie

One year I made a gingerbread house for a daughters (November) birthday - it collapsed in the heat. It still tasted delicious!!

Thea said...

Ooh, that gingerbread house is tempting. Do they ship? I think that your son is modelling the shorts perfectly - highlighting how perfect they are for lounging around in :) x

Wendy said...

Looks scrumptious! And your model looks like he's gearing up for Abercrombie...

Fabulous gingerbread house : )

Heidi said...

your ginger bread house reminds me of the 4th grade class at school makes them every year and I have volunteered for each of my boys, It's a huge messy, fun, interesting, did I mention sticky!
I have kepted them so when Mimi hits 4th grade I will have a village. but they so don't look like yours!

Oh geez, Christmas really is coming, isn't it. What a gorgeous gingerbread house! I would be sneaking little pieces all the way up til Christmas... which is why it's best that you're in Canberra, and responsible, and I'm here at home, sans Gingerbread house. Hmmm.

That gingerbread house is very impressive. I wanted to have a go at making one this year but have a feeling I'd be eating it during construction! Cute shorts too!. x

Love the shorts - have a few pairs cut out here for Baden - I am taking a page out of your book and getting lots cut out and then sit and sew all at one hit:)

Love the Gingerbread house - WOW. I want to make one this year - but thinking that I might buy the kit that you can get from Aldi's:)

What a cute house. I made one last year with a friend and it was a lot of fun. I hope I get to do it again this year :)
They're a lovely decoration.
