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!
