Gingerbread Project 2015
St Gertrude Catholic Church, Chicago, Illinois
The gingerbread creation for 2015 was a model of St Gertrudes Catholic Church in Chicago, Illinois. Sketches and measurements were taken in the summer of 2015, then the team diligently prepared the plans. Adam assisted with the construction of the base as well as electrical lighting. He elected to wire at 240 volts, rather than 120 which he claims is for amateurs.
In this picture you will see a close up of the family trademark "Stained Candy Windows", as staple of all our gingerbread house creations.
Here is picture from sidewalk looking up at St Gertrude. As you can see by the perfectly tall and proportioned Gingerbread towers, the utmost of care and attention to detail was put into this years design.
