Information about this Gingerbread Display:

My entry is a scaled down replica of the Nutcracker stage I made last year for a televised competition. I didn't get to finish all the planned details, so this is my completed vision. Clara is sleeping and dreaming of dancing with the Nutcracker prince and the snowflake ballerinas. The stage, trees, furniture, walkway, fireplace and nutcrackers are made from various colors of gingerbread. Figures and drapes are fondant, while the puzzle reindeer are gingerclay. Royal icing holds it all together!
