Information about this Gingerbread Display:
For a few years, we've been building a gingerbread house to decorate over Thanksgiving weekend. This year's house reminds me of the Renaissance carol "Down in Yon Forest." The house's stained glass windows include four in the traditional rose style, as well as a fifth larger rose window featuring its namesake flower. Some clear windows are bordered by colored candy glass tiles. Climbing ivy on the porte-cochère is echoed by festive swags and garlands. The house is approximately three feet long, two feet deep, and two feet tall. It is 100% edible apart from the lighting and the display platform.
