Thank you to everyone who came out last night for my first gingerbread demonstration! We had a good crowd. Thanks Rusty and Drew @greenmonkeyraleigh for hosting.
I created this house to showcase some fun techniques to bring your gingerbread house to a new level this season.
The front is decorated with a ginger clay door that I used an impression mat on. The rest of the wall is royal icing with dried navy beans pressed into it in a random pattern.
The side wall is made to look like brick. I used an impression mat to press the pattern into the rolled out raw gingerbread before I baked it. Then I used an airbrush to paint a layer of edible pearl sheen and a sponge brush to apply a layer of edible metallic red.
The roof is gingerbread with a few thin strands of ginger clay glued on top of it. I used an airbrush to paint a layer of black, then dusted it all with silver powder to give it a steel look.
The grass in the front is dried parsley and the grass in the back is ground coconut dyed green. The sand is ground Nilla Wafers.
So much potential with edible materials. What fun ingredients did you use for your gingerbread house this season?
