Treasures of the North Pearl

2020 Holiday Gingerbread-Smackdown

Information about this Gingerbread Display:

My treasure chest was inspired by a pirate ship I made in 2014. The chest is filled with some antique treasures, Christmas décor, plus a few 2020 treasures! Our traditional bear is there too - he jumped ship and is social distancing on the beach! The chest is 16"w x 8"d x 14"h, made from gingerbread imprinted with a wood grain look and "stained" with brown food coloring. The metal straps, treasures (except chocolate coins), sea shells, and critters are made from fondant, or fondant covered rice cereal treats, while the jewels are melted Jolly Ranchers. The sand is brown sugar with mixed with black, gray, brown and white sanding sugar.
