Gingerbread castle

This year's gingerbread castle is ready, after baking and putting together all 42 fragile pieces. A nerve wrecking process, I'll tell you. But it all went well, even though it actually broke a little, and the portcullis was destroyed. According to my son, a canon hit the gate. Quite common and nothing to cry about, apparently.

The guards all have weapons, so there should be no chance of hostile intruders succeeding in entering the castle. And in a couple of weeks, we'll bring our hammers and smash it to pieces. Love this part of Christmas!

Good to know the hostile intruders--who are in fact you and your family--will be kept at bay until Christmas. Magnificent gingerbread construction!

Eg klarer ikkje ein gong bake eit ordinært pepperkakehus med 4 veggar og to plater til tak.... så dette er imponerande!

Godt nytt handarbeidsår!
