Author and friend Elinor DeWire posted the photo at left on her Facebook page.
I was interested to see if it was real or not so I did a Google Image Search for the photo and look what I found!
This is definitely a gingerbread lighthouse and the page below from Coastal Living has the instructions.
Building a gingerbread house has many steps, and it does take awhile. But it’s not as difficult as it looks. Just relax and have fun with it—we’d love to see what you come up with!
