    Must it be gingerbread? I'm tempted to participate but in Belgium we prefer to make these in chocolate/icecream.

    I'd like to give a lot of credit to my wife, @Rachel for helping me build this Gingerbread castle. She is 6 months pregnant, and allergic to just about everything we had to cook with. Plus she reigned in my crazy on wanting to go bigger without planning :-D

    Here is the castle story
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Santa needed the magical coals from deep in the Orcs cave to keep his toy making factory working at peak efficiency. He tried to bargain with them to get these coals, but the Orcs did not want their home to be defiled by the presence of Elfs and Great Harts. Santa unable to meet the worlds toy demand on normal coal decided to send in a covert team to steal it. The raid was successful, but there were casualties alerting the Orcs as to who ordered the attack. In a flash of rage the Orcs armed themselves to attack Santa's Workshop, and claim what was theirs. Everything.

    Santa knowing he had been found out asked the Snow Elementals to aid him in defense for the inevitable assault. All the preparations had been made when the grounds started to shake and the Orcish drums of war started to reverberate against the fortress walls. As the small army moved in closer a chant could be heard from the horde. At first it was inaudible, but as the forces moved in closer it was made clear. "Tribute"

    Classic scenario when an 18x18 or greater falls. Also, the wife's first attempt on an at-at for the little terrors.
