Second Annual Gingerbread House

We made our second annual gingerbread house (which is, yes, a specialized form of diorama):

The front and left side (decorated by Louise)

The Necco wafer roof (decorated by me)

The back and right side (decorated by June)

  1. Necco: New England Candy Company, headquartered in Revere, Mass. I haven't seen them for sale in New Orleans so I was surprised to see them used on the Superdome gingerbread model in the Harrah's hotel lobby. Apparently well-connected pastry chefs aren't the only ones with access to this Yankee treat. I'll keep my eyes peeled to purchase a wax paper roll of these chalky wafers.
