  11. Stately home recreated in gingerbread in Christmas display

    BBC News

    A gingerbread replica of a Warwickshire National Trust property, celebrating the end of World War One, has gone on display.

    Gingerbread house

    The 4ft (1.2m) model of Charlecote Park, featuring 586 handmade iced poppies, took volunteer Jana Eastwood 220 hours to make and contains 13kg of icing sugar.

    Poppies

    Replica stained glass windows were made from gelatine sheets and painstakingly hand painted with the actual glass designs.

    Gingerbread windows.

    The house is available to view at Charlecote Park during December.

    Quote Message: I decided on a gingerbread house as sugar rations had been relaxed a little that Christmas in 1918. I picked the house because Charlecote is so much more than just a house, it is a home and it is where people came back to after the war." from Jana Eastwood
