gingerbread120808.jpg It doesn't fit into our holiday decor budget, but rather than be bah humbug over a crazy pricetag ($4,320!) we thought this was a fitting gingerbread house to share with the modernist-loving AT crowd - Mies' Farnsworth house done up in fondant, poured sugar and sugar paste. This sweet rendition of the famous Illinois landmark... ...took 25 hours to make (by April Reed Cake Design) and 15% of the proceeds go to the restoration effort following the recent flood damage.
