Gingerbread Alamo

The December 2009 Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to you by Anna of Very Small Anna and Y of Lemonpi. They chose to challenge Daring Bakers’ everywhere to bake and assemble a gingerbread house from scratch. They chose recipes from Good Housekeeping and from The Great Scandinavian Baking Book as the challenge recipes.

I joined the Daring Baker's challenge last month and really enjoyed the first challenge


Hannah asked for a castle, and this is what she got instead. The alamo met its demise when the one legged Barbie kicked it down by trying to go through the front door.

Here's a replica of the template I originally made out of wax paper

  1. Pretty cool Alamo! You gotta watch out for those Barbie's, she might have been a version that had a black belt.

  2. Awww... your gingerbread creation is too cute! Way to go on this month's challenge... can't wait to see what you bake up for the New Year :)

  3. @Sheltie Girl - You never know what those Barbie's are doing when we're not around. :D

    @silverrock - Thanks! I'm looking forward to the challenges this year.
