Ninth Day of Christmas

I wish I could say my talents included making and decorating gingerbread, but they don’t.  For a few years now, I’ve been obsessed with the Scandinavian style of gingerbread decorating with all white swirling frosting.  In fact a few years ago, I commissioned a local pastry shop that’s been in Salt Lake for over 75 years to make me a Scandinavian gingerbread house.  It’s this little house that’s featured in the Ninth Day of Christmas.
