Information about this Gingerbread Display:
Because of Covid19, my granddaughter was not able to help me this year so I decided to work with a simpler template. The beautiful turn-of-the 19th century greenhouse in our village was the inspiration. The "orangerie" is a minimally decorated gingerbread greenhouse with surprises inside. The windows are gelatine sheets; some of the trees use ice cream cones coated with green royal icing and other greenery is created with pressed and sculpted green rice crispy treats. The poinsettias are made with gum drops. The orange tree is made with a base of grape stems, covered in brown royal icing and pressed with green rice crispy treats and orange balls. Grass is colored coconut and pebbles are red quinoa.
The gnomes are not edible. They are made of terracotta and come from Germany.
