    Curtis, you are good looking AND talented. That is a fantastic gingerbread house. I was half expecting you to sit on it at the end but I guess you have already done that.

  2. That was amazing! something I’ve always wondered about gingerbread houses though… after the holidays, do you eat them? I would imagine they would be stale by then so probably not very appetizing.

  3. I ask him if he would sit on it after the holidays and he said he would consider it.

  4. I’d imagine that would hurt though.

  5. Mikey Dee says:

    Imagine he sat on it and Sal-E was living inside.

  6. OH My! That’s beautiful! What a talent you have! It really is amazing.

  7. How did you know Sal-E lives in a Gingerbread House?

    OMG ! That is truly amazing. The first time some little piece felloff or I messed up the icing I would fling the whole thing across the room and out the window. What talent you have for your art !!!

  11. Truly inspiring!!! What a talent. Please continue to show us every year how you create these works of art.

    With the exception of the foam core substructure it is all edible, but it has usually been sitting there for 4-5 weeks by the time the holidays are done (I’m one of those people that starts putting up the holiday decorations on Thanksgiving). It is very stale, and the humidity in the air makes the unwrapped candy a little bit sticky to the touch. Not exactly appetizing. I usually just throw it in the garbage. Sadly it’s difficult to preserve. These things are temporary.

  13. Curtis says:

    Thank you so much for all the compliments…and to Marc and Fausto for posting this on the main page. I’m honored.
