Last year at Christmas, I thought it would be a good idea to bring home a Dancing Deer gingerbread house kit from Whole Foods and make it with my sister. I thought it would be delightfully fun and turn out beautifully and it turned out being incredibly stressful and really freaking ugly. Proof is below.
Because of this experience, I have a ridiculous amount of respect for Le Parker Meridien and City Harvest’s Gingerbread House display (56th St bt 6th & 7th). Bakeries around the city created charming scenes inspired by movies made in NYC. Along with making me realize my gingerbread-making skills are way below star quality, this display also made me recognize I need to up my movie game. I have a problem watching movies because my attention span is about 40 minutes, but I think I should force myself to at least watch movies that were filmed in this fabulous city. Some of my favorites:
Check this display out until January 9th, 2011. You can also donate $1 to City Harvest to vote for your favorite scene. Unfortunately, there is no opportunity to nom nom nom on these munchies. I imagine they taste much better than the one Katie and I made.
