Sooo, what started out as a fun, end-of-the-year xmas project with the kids took a more warrior turn after the kids left and the older kids got to play Smiley

--Here are the plans for our castle. Not a house. A castle. Complete with gummi bear warriors.


--The kids get to decorate the actual castle, the fortress walls are still yet to come




After the young'ins decorated their part of the castle, we set to work on fortifying it and recreating a battle scene of epic proportions with the use of our crafty minds and 3 bags of gummi bears at our disposal. We included a moat, nay, an ocean of blood.

Siege ladder!

Sieged!

Piked!

Peace was not served this xmas..

Flame arrowed!

Saving their fellow soldiers from the ocean of blood with sea monsters

Sea monsters!

The gummi bear pyre for those slain during the epic battle

Out of all the lovely gingerbread houses I've seen so far... I think this must be my favourite.  Cheesy
It's so different from the others, in a good way!

Nice use of gummi bears. Wink
(Oh, and I just LOVE their little chocolatey helmets!)

Warped.....  wonderfully, wonderfully warped!

Poor, brave gummi warriors.  May their gummi spirits live on forever, feasting in gummi Valhalla, being served by gummi Valkyries.

This is so funny!  it did not escape  me that there was a "peace" sign on the side of the castle! LOL!!!!! Very, very fun and imaginative.  I love the fighting gummies and the captions make the pictures so much more fun.

Wow.  Just... WOW.  Best. Cake. Ever.

I totally want this as my wedding cake now.

ps.  I know this is technically biscuits, not a cake, but it's a cake in my mind, since it's cake-sized. Wink

You know, I'm usually all about the 'cute' when it comes to gingerbread houses, but this one is just so clever that it may just have to get my vote!!!  Grin

Way to think outside of the box!

Let us all take care to warn our curious gummy friends that this awesome castle is not a place for casual visitation, despite it's hypnotic draw.  lol  Run away! Run away!

Whew.  Such a fun idea!
