Teens build ‘Gingerbread Cathedral,' get out of writing essay

Three teens at a Utah high school made an especially festive gingerbread creation, of towering proportions. The teacher gave three options for the end of the semester, a large multiple choice test, a three-page essay on how to start a mortgage or build a gingerbread house. One of the teens had visited the National Cathedral last year, and fell in love with the architecture of it, so the trio spent nine days creating a plywood form and applying graham crackers, frosting, pretzels, chocolates, Hershey kisses, Sixlets, Jolly Ranchers and gumdrops. When asked if it was worth skipping the essay both boys interviewed answered, "100%." (KSLTV5)
