What ingredients produce great gingerbread houses? Teamwork. A blueprint. Plenty of sugar and flour. And time -- lots of it.Chefs Michael Rork and Holly Forbes teamed with architects Bill Keller and Carl Oehrig for more than a week to craft this Fells Point scene of cake, icing and chocolate. Their City Pier diorama stands unsupported -- no plywood or hidden frame.What holds it up? "Sheer luck," quips Ms. Forbes (and a solid design, tested for soundness before construction began). Working from photographs, they drafted plans and cut templates for each wall and window, then baked and painted for a week.
