Finalist: Peppermint Diner
"The diner was created for a charity auction. I had to make molded forms from aluminum roof flashing and a pop rivet gun. I used a Dremel tool for sanding edges and drilling holes. I used an X-Acto knife for all my cutting. The house is lit inside, and the sign on the roof actually rotates slowly. It is quite large, 18-inches long, 12-inches wide and 18-inches tall. The whole house is gingerbread, fondant and candy. The decorations all are candy except for the cars. The light, bench and specials board are fondant."
