This weekend I made the hot dog/ spaghetti Octopi for my man and his boys. I was a hero. I wasn't sure who liked them more,  my man or his boys (6 and 8 yrs)... lol. So I asked them what they wanted next weekend, and without missing a beat the 6 year old says, "Something shaped like a house!"

PLEASE... throw me some house shaped food ideas. Lunch or dinner, not dessert:)

So, this challenge sounds like a ton of fun to me!  A preliminary Googling turned up this - http://www.flickr.com/photos/9058623@N03/1223347052 - I'm brainstorming some ideas for you right now that I will try and test in the morning and get back to you!

Oohhhh I didn't even think of it that way... my brain was totally in 3D... I was trying to figure out how to engineer a structure! 

Thanks! That would be cool  for breakfast! pancake house, bacon, sausage, eggs... oh I'm hungry now.

If you wanted to go 3-d maybe use a whole ham sliced down thick as the walls or even into beams or bricks and use mashed potatoes as a mortar. Veggies could be used as decorative features such as lamp posts, windows, shingles, etc. Use mashed potatoes as glue or use tooth picks. I suppose you could also make a log cabin from carrots. I once did the mashed potato mountain from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"for a Sci-fi themed party.


There is a fun book I picked up once called Play with Your Food that may help inspire future ideas.

Okay, as promised, I tried out my crazy idea - and it worked!  It's long and includes pictures, though, so I made it a separate post here ->  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=397793.0

It might look labor-intensive but I swear it was not bad at all. The hardest part was the templates, and you could easily do those in advance when you have a few spare minutes.  Smiley
