It didn’t take long for the rest of my tower to collapse. Half an hour ago Kalle shouted from the kitchen that two walls were down and while I was downloading the photos to the computer he shouted again that all walls had fell.
The roof of Portomaso Tower collapsed early this morning
Roof of the Portomaso Tower collapsed early this morning, leaving massive structure damage to the rest of the building. Now when the roof is gone, there is no weight on the walls and it will probably take a few days before they fall down. If they still stands by the end of next week, they will be demolished.
The building constructor Emma Brynils says that she will not rebuild the tower until the problems leading to this collapse, has been analyzed and actions taken to prevent this from happening again.
-It’s really no fun to put all time and effort into building houses or in this case – a tower – when it only lasts a couple of days, Emma says.
Since the collapse were predicted the building was already evacuated and no gingerbread man or women was injured.
Look at my poor tower… not much to do about it now.
I’ll just wait and see how long it takes before it falls apart.
I know for sure it won’t last until Christmas anyway.
Only a few days has gone by since I made the tower and it is already falling apart. The gingerbread is soft and spongy, and the sugar-glue dissolves slowly. I’m surprised if it stills stands on Monday.
What should I do? Any suggestions?
Since I hade plenty of dingerbread dough left, I decided to build a gingerbread house.
…and I still have dough left that I had to put back in the fridge.
A few years ago I made lussekatter (saffron buns). And I thought it was just as good to make a lot of lussekatter, so I almost doubled the recipe. Then I was stuck baking lussekatter for 6 hours. I was sooo tired the next day! But I think my collegues at work were happy when I served the buns at the coffee break.
So, this time I made only 3/4 of the recipe. Next time I’ll only make half!
