This is a huge display measuring in at almost four feet across and two and a half foot tall. It is made primarily of gingerbread with structure within being other materials to ensure it stays strong and won’t collapse. The window amount is awesomely done in details and must have given the artist a major headache. There is a lot of detail in this piece. Just simple small details that you find when you keep looking at it. I’m not a big fan of the purchased not edible materials like the Christmas trees and train being added but this is a beautiful display.
This such a colorful cottage with a roof made from colorful gumdrops. Candy cane sticks used here fro the porch posts and the gumdrops brought down from the roof to the front door porch makes this design great. They even added candy sprinkles to coat the chimney and then added a puff of smoke coming from the chimney – neat. The trees are made by piping icing onto a cone (could be Styrofoam or ice cream cone cut to different shapes). They even finished the illusion of a bit of scene inside the windows.
This home is a Victorian beauty isn’t she? The artist did a wonderful job with the icing work – even allowing the porch edging and edging on top of the peak of the house to dry before installing. Notice how the whole house is moved up with peppermints to give the home a crawlspace? The peppermint sticks used for the porch poles is a great idea. The wreath is made from a lot of the sugar crystal balls that you decorate candy with. The bushes and plants – even a cactus is all done in detail.
This chalet style gingerbread house uses licorice for a fence and large gumdrops for the walkway edges. They have lined the roof with smaller gumdrops and used fake snow around the base of the house. The hole was left in the front to add a nice detail. These can be cut out with cookie cutters before baking.
