Happy Saturday and welcome to another post sharing something interesting that I have photographed. I hope you enjoy looking at this amazing creation and find some inspiration from the details of the design.
A local doctor does something incredible for the Concord Library each holiday season. Dr. Andrea Resceniti, a surgeon at Emerson Hospital, makes an enormous gingerbread house that is displayed in the front room of the library. She starts baking the gingerbread and assembling the house early in the fall. I don't know how she finds the time to make and donate these houses but the entire community gets so much enjoyment from her work. I didn't have a chance to take pictures of this creation until last week. It still has a delicious aroma - it is a real gingerbread house with incredible details.
These four photos show the full view of each side of the house:
The house is very large and there are so many details. I did some close up shots to give you a better look at the individual parts.
Santa and his sleigh...
Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer are around the corner on the roof.
One of several gumdrops trees. Even the edge of the board holding the house is beautifully trimmed.
A train circles around one side of the house.
A candy cane cage.
These candies look like Lego blocks!
There are lots of candy characters and animals placed around the "lawn."
The duck pond (or fountain) - so cute!
It's hard to see in the photos but the doors and windows are glazed with clear red candy glass.
Two turrets are made of "stone" with this pebble candy.
These candies really do look like little rocks.
There are so many patterns carefully made with candies.
Thanks to Dr. Andrea Resciniti for this incredible gift to the community.
I know that it is a long time until next Christmas but for something like this you might need to start now! You could also make a smaller Valentine's Day "cottage" - I think that would be fun!
