My 13 year old nephew made a gingerbread house at my place. I love how it turned out! He did not have any special candy requests, he said he wanted to use my leftovers (from my creation for the Eastman Sweet Creations). I think it is awesome how he reused what I had left (tree and reindeer). He even took an idea that I could not figure out – use a waffle cup bowl to make a fountain, and he made an awesome and easy fountain. My 19 year old niece and I were his assistants but he had the vision and did a majority of the work.
