Lit gumdrops line a rice-krispy stone wall around one of Kim Wheeler's handmade gingerbread houses on display at the Walla Walla Country Club. Wheeler, who works at the Country Club and bakes cakes on the side, said these are the first gingerbread houses but they will likely become an annual tradition.
Stories this photo appears in:
Kim Wheeler, who just started making gingerbread houses this year, built a village to decorate the Country Club.
It's hard to believe that this is the first year Kim Wheeler has made gingerbread houses. With melted lifesaver stained-glass windows, royal-icing piped evergreens, pretzel fences and a sour belt roof, they seem the work of a veritable gingerbread master.
