You knew it had to be done. With a couple of little boys obsessed with all things space related, our gingerbread “house” this year was bound to succumb to the obsession. We were happy to oblige the boys and Micah did a great job designing something that would allow for a smoke-and-flames liftoff. It took us several days to get from dough to bread to rocket, but I don’t think the boys minded a bit, especially once we actually got down to the pouring-candy-on-every-available-surface part of the process.
Anyway, here’s the process and the finished product, for your enjoyment.
