"Growing up on the East Coast and my childhood memories of visiting the shore watching fishermen inspired the idea of building a wharf. 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 boat was the most difficult, using sheet metal and trying to keep the gingerbread stable enough to bake. My husband, Ron, used food coloring to paint all fondant fish, birds, people and the collie. Matt's Fish Market and the bunk house were hand-piped with icing. The tools we used were a Dremel, hobby-craft knife, sandpaper, paint brushes and modeling tools."
