Fan Feature: A Gingerbread Office for Dumbledore

During the holidays we often see many types of gingerbread houses as decorations, however today we thought you might enjoy a fun look at another gingerbread creation, Harry Potter style. Thanks much to TLC reader Brittany who made this very cool gingerbread Dumbledore's office, complete with Sorting Hat, Fawkes and Dumbledore himself (closeups here and here). You can see over 140 photos of the entire process here in our galleries. Brittany said that it took her 16 days of many steps to complete the project (some 80 hours total out of those days) and noted it is 100% edible, save for the wooden base. The books (seen here) are actual book titles found from the series or songs written by Wizard rock group the Ministry of Magic, with the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling on the top shelf.  The 16 year old says this creation was in competition and won First place in the 6th-12th grade category. Congratulations Brittany!

Wow that is amazing!! Building a normal gingerbread house is incredibly hard so I give her huge props for making something so complicated! It looks perfect!

"One more nighttime stroll into my office, Potter, and you will pay!"[br]"Right," said Harry coolly, turning back to his ginger roots. "I'll bear that in mind if I ever get the urge to go in there."[br]Snape's eyes flashed.
