Hogwarts in Gingerbread (actually Biltmore House)
(Grove Park Inn National Gingerbread Competition)
Gingerbread Biltmore House
This was one of the most amazing creations at the 2009 National Gingerbread Competition. Everyone sitting around us was speculating that it was a model of the Biltmore House until someone noticed that it was sitting on top of a book. I was thinking it was a gingerbread pop-up book (from a distance). We finally all decided that it must be Hogwarts when we saw the Harry Potter-looking glasses on the cake board next to the giant book. We've since confirmed that it actually was the Biltmore House (and just regular reading glasses rather than Harry Potter glasses).
It was really beautiful either way!
