In the festive holiday season of overeating, I like to make sure wildlife is included. Here's a gingerbread house I made especially for birds and squirrels. Everything's edible for my wild friends (no chocolate, no hard candies, etc.) The house is made of real gingerbread and the sides are held together by icing made from confectioners sugar. A friend makes the houses and hosts a party where each person decorates the house to her fancy. In my case, I used peanut butter to hold all the items (sunflower seeds and other sweet treats) in place. You're welcome, squirrly!
