Pimp Your Gingerbread

Recipe for a Gingerbread Village: Gather ingredients. With an electric mixer, cream 100 pounds of butter and 80 pounds of sugar until fluffy. Beat in 500 eggs, one at a time. Add cinnamon, ginger, salt, baking soda, and flour. Mix well. Bake at 350 degrees for at least one hour. When the walls of your gingerbread house have cooled, frost and decorate with a ton of candy. Or, this Thursday you could just visit the Adam's Mark Hotel, 400 Olive St., for the biggest display of for-looking-not-eating gingerbread houses that you've ever looked at and not eaten in your life.
