I modeled my gingerbread house after a photo of a Christmas ornament that I saw in a magazine. I used royal icing to pipe the siding on my house. The trim around the windows and the white scalloped trim on the front of the house was made using fondant. My figures were also crafted using fondant. The leaves in the windows were made with royal icing and the trees are royal icing piped on an ice cream cone base. The candles in the windows are made of gum paste and then painted with food coloring. Inside the front window under the porch there is a gingerbread table with a fondant tablecloth, a gingerbread pie, a baking sheet with gingerbread men, and a fondant rolling pin. These might not show up in my photo. The stone fence is gingerbread that has been baked on a curved bread pan and I've used an impression mat to get the stone look.
