Gingerbread Houses at the House of Blues

The House of Blues (in the Downtown Pavilions, 201 San Jacinto) held four gingerbread house workshops on the weekends leading up to Christmas, run by executive chef Jeff Inman.

We stopped by to video one and have sped up the video for your amusement. At $45 per Swedish-made gingerbread kit and $10 per additional kid, the event provided some fun, at least for the kids we saw.

It certainly looked a lot tastier than the scarring experience we had in elementary school, when the icing for our gingerbread project included raw eggs and we were prevented from even tasting the tantalizing architectural morsel before us.

Not that we're bitter.
