Sweet Excursion

The annual gingerbread house display had a "super hero" theme this year. Gingerbread displays are created by Seattle's architecture firms and the Sheraton's culinary staff. Donations from the displays support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

This one has a lot going on, but in person, it made for a very creative display. As noted, it is all edible (although it has been sitting the hotel lobby for a month...). Here's your chance to eat an pre-algebra book!

The designers did not forget the drawers, either.

...and cheery little snowman from another display.

That is impressive. Hope that a lot of dough/dollars(!) was/were raised.

Libby & Aerie-el,
Thanks for stopping by! It has been impressive enough to keep us going back almost every year. Some years more than others, but always interesting to see what they've managed to create. I do believe it is a significant fundraiser for the organization.
