Information about this Gingerbread Display:

My entry was inspired by my travels to Provence a few years ago. Many of the older buildings feature French Provincial mansard roof lines. A Parisian law had been in place since 1783, restricting the heights of buildings to 20 metres. The height was only measured up to the cornice line, making any living space contained in a mansard roof exempt.
The gingerbread house and fencing is all hand piped, featuring no store-bought candy and no non-edible internal structure.
I hope you like it!
