I wanted to do something challenging this holiday season, and boy did I find the project! I was inspired to create my own gingerbread dream home. I am a huge fan of everything Mid-Century Modern; architecture, design, furniture, decor everything. I guess growing up when I did had something to do with that.
I found a really great recipe for gingerbread on Pinterest here. I started with a sketch and then made templates in case I wanted to make this again. I got most of my candies at Bulk Barn which had a ridiculously awesome selection. After baking and assembling the main pieces (without breaking!) I set out to fill in the details.
The chimney was really the main focus for me and I used chocolate pebbles for that.
Satin candies were used for all of the windows and I gave the whole thing a dusting of large white sugar to create an "icy" feel.
I had such fun creating this...it looks like I'll have a new holiday tradition. Enjoy! cheers! diane
