A few years back, I started to find success as a pumpkin carver. I made a website called ExtremePumpkins.com
and started to write some books. It was fun, but then when October was over I was lonely and bored (not really). I decided to work on something else. That something else was Gingerbread Houses. My friends and I created some really silly ones and I made a website about it called GingerbreadGhetto.com
. I suggest that you visit it for a laugh. I've also included a couple of the houses here as well.
This was my attempt at a Gingerbread Liquor Store. I guess I was tired of cutesy gingerbread houses and decided to make something a little bit darker.
I used a gingerbread man kit to make this one. Rather than cute buttons and leiderhosen I went for the leg cast and bandages.
GingerbreadGhetto.com featured an entire arson scene with this gingerbread house. I like burning stuff and this one looked great after the fire was done.
One of personal favorites was this use of a gingerbread man making kit. This was so very easy to make and has a great look. I hope you will consider making one. I call him "the decapitator".
My friend Gabby kicks ass. I paid her an incredibly small amount of money and she made me this gingerbread peep show complete with signs and money-holding, angry gingerbread men. Friends are a wonderful thing.
