On the lighter side for Labor Day in the USA, FormFonts team member Marc and his son, Raef, made a sugar cookie barn. Raef really wanted to make the gingerbread haunted house he saw in a magazine. His dad said that it was too early for Halloween and that they could make a barn from scratch. Raef’s passion is tractors, trucks, farms, construction sites and etc.
With SketchUp the barn was designed, with Betty Crocker the dough was made and the internet offered up a frosting that when dry was harder than concrete. The construction went smoothly except for the son’s M n’ Ms sliding down the roof and walls. The demolition in order to eat the barn was challenging. A kitchen knife was required. The fork-lift fork was no match for the concrete frosting.
We hope all your labors go well and get better.
