The Great Munger Gingerbread Museum

A few weeks ago, we noticed that our new local gourmet grocery store offered a wide variety of custom-colored M&Ms, in bulk. Nora and Greta decided that we absolutely *must* build a gingerbread house.

Of course, *just* a gingerbread house wouldn’t do. It would be a museum. And the museum couldn’t be an ordinary, Parthenon-shaped affair. It must have an entirely new and unique design. The result is an asymmetrical architectural “masterpiece,” with four external walls for displaying reproductions of works of art in M&Ms. Here is the process, in pictures:

Nora also reproduced “Dot” from Sunday in the Park on the small extra wing of her work.

Greta used this small extra space to reproduce Sargent’s Madame X
