Finalist: Painted Lady

"I created a Painted Lady, much like the home I live in. The structure is all gingerbread, covered with colored modeling chocolate for the siding. Shingles were all handcrafted out of a combination of modeling chocolate and fondant. I handmade the marzipan red ribbons and green garland trimming the picket fences. All the picket fences were prepared from pastillage. The gazebo was crafted with gingerbread on the top and bottom. The pillars of the gazebo were made from white chocolate piped into plastic tubes placed in the freezer and unmolded, then wrapped with red marzipan ribbons. "
