4th Place: Carson's Flour Mill
"This flour mill is named after our grandson, Carson. It took 3 months to create out of gingerbread, rolled fondant, noodles, gelatin sheets for the windows, icing, licorice and gum for the roofs. The water wheel was the most difficult part, especially making the water flow look as real as possible. My husband, Ron, used food coloring to paint all of the fondant fish, ducks, signs, and the bike. Each of the siding pieces were rolled to exact length and attached with icing. The tools we used were a Dremel, hobby craft knife, sandpaper, paint brushes, and modeling tools. Ron and I have been baking gingerbread scenes for the last 10 years and enjoy spending hours together coming up with creative ideas."
