The Gingerbread Rocket

This Christmas season Brad has seen a few Gingerbread Houses and he wanted us to make one.  I decided it would be better to use graham crackers because there was just no way I was going to make gingerbread from scratch.  We went to the store and got candy and the crackers and frosting in a can (is that any worse or better than cheese in a can?) and came home to build the house.  Upon arriving home Brad informed us that he didn't want to make a gingerbread house, he wanted to make a gingerbread rocket.  It's a bit unorthodox, but it turned out great.  Here are the pictures!  

Brad spent a lot of the time eating the frosting and candy.

Here's the rocket starting to take shape.

And here's the final product.  Pretty sweet for the first ever Graham Cracker Christmas Rocket.
