LBR, nobody really likes the taste of gingerbread. It exists for exactly two reasons: To serve as a flavor for seasonal scented products, and to build whimsical structures during the holidays. Fulfill your annual obligation on the latter front with the Wilton Build-it-Yourself Nintendo Mario Bros. Gingerbread Castle, $14 at Walmart. (You’ll probably want to pick it up in-store to save on shipping.) Most sellers charge $20 or more, but honestly, even that would be reasonable for such an awesome confection. Just to make extra-sure no one eats it before Christmas, maybe you should go heavy on the included fondant.
