In a desperate attempt to save the endangered mountain caribou of British Columbia, Canada, the government there has ordered a death sentence for up to 183 grey wolves. Populations of South Selkirk mountain caribou have dwindled into the double digits, and the provincial government blames the iconic wolf species for putting the caribou in danger of extinction . Wolves are often made out to be “the bad guys” when another species is in trouble, and then targeted for killing , but there is a lot of controversy surrounding their relative guilt or innocence.

We had to share this ambitious gingerbread masterpiece replicating in small scale Frank Lloyd Wright ‘s Fallingwater, created by culinary artist Melodie Dearden. On Dearden’s  Garden Melodies  blog, she shares the painstaking process of building such an intricate model from baked gingerbread sheets and quite a lot of frosting. For those not familiar with Fallingwater , it was built in the late 1930s in Western Pennsylvania, and it is famous for its cantilevered structures that peer, somewhat treacherously, over a waterfall. This home is a complicated plan that appears to float above the water, making it that much more challenging to recreate with only sugar to hold your building together!
