The Baltimore area abounds in experts at cookie construction

Susan Forsyth of Owings Mills was on the phone congratulating her younger sister, Mary Elliott of Timonium, for winning fourth place in Good Housekeeping magazine's gingerbread-house contest when her husband brought in the mail -- with a notice that Forsyth had won first place in the contest.

Winning the contest -- announced in the magazine's December issue -- with her Victorian-style creation brought Forsyth a prize of $2,000 and a lot of media attention, including an appearance this past week on the Oprah Winfrey show. "It was like a fantasy," Forsyth said. "They treated us like royalty."

Forsyth will also appear at 9 a.m. on Sunday on Dan Rodricks' "Rodricks for Breakfast" show (WMAR, Channel 2). The gingerbread house she will be finishing on the show will be auctioned to benefit Bea Gaddy's programs for the homeless.
