Information about this Gingerbread Display:

Homestead Kitchen & Bakery is my favorite local place to eat.

It took over 150 hours and 2 months to create. Everything is edible.

Details include a mini Gingy house, pies, donuts, and cookies, all created with fondant. The brick texture was done by hand prior to baking. Stonework detail was created using a dremel, then dry brushing with food color, & finished with tinted icing mortar. The windows are isomalt.
