Gingerbread and things

I had originally planned to post photos of Hyatt hotel's Gingerbread Lane around Christmas and then have a 2012 recap post, but holiday fun and XCOM sorta got in the way. So! I'm merging the two (but mostly it's gingerbread and a paragraph at the end)

The Hyatt in downtown Vancouver does a Gingerbread Lane every year around Christmas, where they display gingerbread houses made by various clubs/schools/professionals for voting to raise money for Make-A-Wish. It's a chance to see some really creative takes on a classic gingerbread house.

Wizard of Oz gingerbread! The Emerald City is covered in green rock sugar. Auntie Em's gingerbread house was perched on top of a spinning tornado!

UP gingerbread house, complete with Carl, Russell, and Dug :>

The Nutcracker in gingerbread. I really loved the painted panels on the sides.

The idea of this one was Santa's theme park, with a ferris wheel, cotton candy, and my favourite, a Santa roller coaster.

This one was one of my favourites. It stood out for being a little more traditional in that it uses just gingerbread and less fondant/sugar decorations but the level of detail and intricate piping really amazed me! The display could be rotated to see four equally-detailed holiday scenes.

2012 went by in a flash. I didn't post as many reviews/FOTDs as I would have liked, partly because my facial eczema had a bad year, but I hope you enjoyed all my nail posts! :> Next year I hope I can post more consistently and with a wider variety of beauty (and non-beauty) content. Please have a safe and happy new year. See you in 2013!
