Cape Cod in the Fall

This is my second gingerbread house. My house is a cape cod style called "Autumn House." It's size is two feet high by two feet wide. The structure is all gingerbread, and I piped royal icing for my clapboard siding. The roof is bowtie pasta and cereal on the eaves. I used marzipan to make apples and baskets and pumpkins. The porch has cinnamon stick columns. I colored coconut for the grass, but baked it slightly to make it a little brown. My stone work is soup beans. I used Oreos on my chimney. The window "glass" is poured hard candy. Some shrubs are corn flakes and others are Fruity Pebbles.
