Information about this Gingerbread Display:

I am a home baker who was asked to design and build this for a baking kit company that started up in the UK, to promote mindfulness during lockdown.
This house was made to show what could be done with their top of the range gingerbread kit. The extensive kit came with design consultancy and support from the team and myself - soliciting interest from the pastry chef of an Arab Diplomat!
I decided to go with an English Georgian Manor design.
The build includes quality baking ingredients, including Saracino modelling paste, Saracino Isomalt, Squires petal paste and dragees from various sprinkle suppliers. The figures and decorations are all hand modelled and the finished house measures 18” tall. It makes a fabulous feature, especially when the LEDs illuminate the insides of the windows.
As this was my first foray into house building, I thank your community page members for tips and advice.
