Gingerbread Mwami Palace

When I wasn't much older than Bromley, a friend from German club and I built a gingerbread "chalet" for Christmas. A picture of us and our creation ended up on the front page of our local newspaper.

On Tuesday night Bromley had a friend, Sophie, spend the night. Yesterday morning I helped the ladies make gingerbread Mwami palaces.

It required several tries (with delicious failures), but Heid and I finally got it to turn out.

The project was based upon a traditional Rwanda dwelling, this is a replica of the old King's Palace in Nyanza:
