Sorry it's after Christmas... but for Christmas I got a new camera, as my other one went out and it just wouldn't do justice to the Hobbit Hole to do pictures when the camera I was borrowing in between the going out of one and the buying of a new one. I used the same gingerbread recipe I have used before. We cut out the front and doors of gingerbread, cut some "logs" for the sides and used cardboard for the top and back, only because we couldn't agree on a way to bake the gingerbread for it.
I had some extra melted chocolate when I made some chocolate covered nuts for Christmas, so we spread that over the top, back and lawn areas and then covered it with green colored coconut.
We are huge LOTR buffs, if you can't tell... and were quite pleased with the end result, though I think we needed to spend alot more time on it. Just didn't work this year, but there is always next year and it got our creativity going.
