WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Maggie and Tammy Caron's fenced-in, single-story home with a fireplace looks good enough to eat.
In fact, it is edible.
With a frame made of gingerbread, the roof iced and decorated with candy, the log pile made of chocolate licorice and the fence built of gingerbread men and candy canes, the Carons turned out an entry that took first place in the adult category of Renfrew Museum's first gingerbread house competition.
"We're already brainstorming for what we're going to do next year," said Tammy Caron.
Caron and her 11-year-old daughter, Maggie, embarked on gingerbread house construction for the first time this year when they found out about the contest.
