How about a vegetable cottage instead of a gingerbread house?
Created by Green Giant; we found it on
It was originally posted on Green Giant’s Facebook page.
Here’s the rub:
The bloggers who re-posted provided the ingredients, but instructed the reader to “Click here for the directions From Green Giant’s Facebook Page.”
Alas, clicking all those links delivers a “Page Not Found.”
Conspiracy: Maybe there never were directions! At best, we have some step-by-step photos.
So you’ll have to put it together yourself. Or delegate it to someone who likes to build.
If you’re a great food crafter, please make it and send us the instructions.
