Colorful Candy Gingerbread House

exps33274_CWXCov06ClonewLights

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.

Gingerbread House – Chalet

gingerbread-house-square-640-2

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.
