Gingerbread houses can be so clever. This one is on display at my local Whole Foods, made by the baker from a kit that's for sale. Tell me, does it seem excessive to you to use higher-price organic ingredients in a gingerbread house? I was confused by this. The kits I've assembled in past years have been edible only in theory (like they wouldn't poison you) but have very dry gingerbread and stiff sugar decoration that would not be appealing to eat. So why use organics?
That said, this chef was very creative and I love the penguins.
Here are photos of the making of a gingerbread house three years ago:
