Now just the light house alone took just over 10 hours to build. I never did a count of the bricks, no time for that. And I have to say, I was extremely pleased with house the brick work turned out.

I tried a few new techniques this year. One was pouring sugar for the ice surface. Again, I was very pleased with the look of the ice.

I also used gelatin sheets colored with edible marker for stained glass windows.

Being it was The Off Season Santa and his lovely bride were on the coast taking a relaxing break after the Christmas rush.

It started out alright.

Santa

Things were quite nice,

 

and relaxing……

at first……………..

Then things slowly started getting out of control.

And it went from bad…….

to worse.

And ended up as a case of too much of a good thing.

Really looking back at it it could have done with some serious editing.

Still, I was pleased with how the build went! It is a good day when you can raise money for charity with sugar and flour!
