Gingerbread Express

Gingerbread Pammy at rest.

A couple of weeks ago Pammy and Rey got a job making gingerbread houses to be used for centerpieces at a fundraiser for the San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet. They've been working intensely making these incredible houses out of bread and candy. Cool! The fundraiser is this Saturday and I'll have more photos showing off their creations. For now here are some photos to give you an idea of the process required to make them. Enjoy.

Gingerbread Rey.


Adding the bells and whistles.

Gingerbread people! Holy cow!!

Pammy rollin' da dough.

The first stage is complete.
