Finalist: Victorian Home Christmas

"The picture doesn't do this justice. The gingerbread was cut with an X-Acto knife and each wall has gelatin windows. The roof is black licorice, cut out by my father, a master carpenter who has since passed. We used piped icing for snow and trim with a candy cigarette banister. Stacked wood on the porch was cut from tootsie rolls, and we used marshmallow for the shrubs and trees."
