The gingerbread mystery revealed

I kept remembering that I needed to say which girls made which house, and then forgetting when I was near the computer again.  So, without further ado, here you go.

The maker of the glass tower was <drum roll>

Rachel Ray!!

Rachel had a clear vision from the moment she began of what she wanted her tower to be like.  She thought up the idea of using the glass candy for the eye, and I thought it was spectacular.  (And not as hard to make as I expected it to be, thankfully.)   We were also impressed with her persistence in finding a way to add more candy to her structure.


The maker of the m&m tower was….<more drum roll>

Jenna Ray!!!


Jenna stunned us this year with her creative interpretation of the eye of Sauron, using orange m&ms and orange colored frosting to build a dimensional model of the eye.  We were also impressed with her patience as she carefully shaved away more and more of the pieces of graham cracker for each layer of her tower.


Way to go girls.  It’s going to be hard to top this next year!
