3rd Runner Up: Belle's Bakery
"All the bricks were cut from slabs of gingerbread using a pizza wheel and a paring knife. They were baked in batches at different temps to give the bricks random colors. They were all applied to the house by hand with royal icing. The roof is made of gum paste and each roof tile was colored and formed by hand. The windows are Isomalt that was melted and hardened on silicone sheets. The shelving inside the bakery window is gingerbread, and all the cakes and breads in the window are handmade from fondant. The roof and the snow have been airbrushed with a shiny vanilla food coloring to give it a beautiful sheen. It took just under four months for me to complete."
