The Gingerbread Architect
If you can’t spend Christmas seaside, then at least bring the shore to you with a Cape Cod or South Beach Art Deco house―a gingerbread house, that is. Complete with recipes and blueprints for 12 awe-inspiring homes, this book guides you through each step of the building process. In case you can’t find required ingredients, the resources section lists national and online suppliers. By Susan Matheson and Lauren Chattman, 2008, $22.50. Visit randomhouse.com.
