Gingerbread House

A Simple Yeast Experiment

Pour one packet of yeast in with a small amount of soda pop. Wait 24 hours to see what happens. When the time has elapsed, take a bit and look at it under a microscope. This is yeast in a 1/2 a can of soda after sitting for 45 minutes. We used this yucky leftover soda from is a nice pink color, though!

Gingerbread House Part I

We've had this special pan for years. We love it--it makes it easy to make a gingerbread house. Bake two of one side and one of the other and you've got it ready to put together.
