SPECIAL HOLIDAY ISSUE / THE SCOUT

Gingerbread modern

December 06, 2007|David A. Keeps | Times Staff Writer

NEED inspiration when it comes to shopping for party hosts, finicky family members or the friend who has everything? The Scout has some ideas for you, starting with a traditional item with a contemporary twist. The gingerbread house that decorates buffets this time of year has been given a serious midcentury makeover by the Red Envelope catalog. Its Modern Gingerbread House is a dead ringer for a Palm Springs Eichler or Alexander ranch complete with a butterfly roof, sugar-icing clerestory windows and a candy rock garden (though that front door is a tad underwhelming). The 18-inch-wide, fully edible edifice is $78; for $10 more, you can add a name or some short personal message. (877) 733-3683, www.redenvelope.com.
