Information about this Gingerbread Display:
This hen house was inspired by my actual hen house and chickens. The house, the chickens and the feed buckets are gingerbread frosted with colored royal icing. The hay is vanilla and Carmel flavored hard candy. The feed bag is taffy. I made both of these by hand. The chicken feed inside the bag is crushed pecans and walnuts mixed with gold sprinkles. I made the roof titles by "washing" the sugar off sour apple candy strips (the soft kind) and re-coating them with silver/black sprinkles.
