Nose so bright

2022 Holiday Gingerbread-Smackdown

Information about this Gingerbread Display:

My piece was inspired by a painted wood reindeer my mom created while I was young that made an appearance every Christmas. With my gingerbread replica, I sought to bring a sense of nostalgia with traditional decorative piping and candy, but used in a more non conventional way. Licorice rope give more dimension to the fondant bow and sour power straws create greenery for the poinsettia. The nose is made with blown isomalt and lights up so Santa can find his way.
