    Why does everyone sculpt stuff out of marzipan, does anyone even eat it??
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    It's not really meant to be eaten in a big hunk. Usually it covers some kind of cake. It's really easy to scuplt with which is why it's used.

    Woe to the person that breaks off a hunk of that house! It looks great. All the trees look gorgeous and quite festive.

    The White House always looks so beautiful for Christmas. I would love to see it in person some time.
