Gingerbread Mondrian

Every year, my family celebrates "Holiday Craft Day" on the day after Thanksgiving. We eat homemade turkey soup that my Nana makes from leftover turkey and my brothers, cousins, and I (and sometimes some extra friends) decorate gingerbread houses, ornaments, and stockings. It's one of my favorite traditions because I love my grandma's soup and I love to outcraft my siblings. Yes, crafting can be competitive.

This year, I made a gingerbread house inspired by Mondrian. It's made of white frosting (which dripped everywhere), black licorice (gross!), and colored fruit roll-ups. I hope Piet would be proud.

I think you should find a gingerbread competition somewhere and submit this :-) Hell, if it made Mondrian famous, why not you?
