Av was working in the Quarter last week, and I asked him to take some pics of some of the gingerbread displays — so great this year!

Their gingerbread house is a replica of the ‘wedding cake house’ on St. Charles Avenue. For over two months, the bakers have made/used: 390 pounds of gingerbread dough, 134 pounds of fondant, 44 pounds of gum paste, 209 pounds of royal icing, 30 pounds of chocolate, and 10 pounds of piping gel
