Just a quick post from me today - I have a stinking cold!
Did you see the work in progress?
Well, here is the finished house - lots of photos.
I had to take these in my kitchen, where the lights give everything a slightly orange glow.
This is a BIG house, and I assembled it on a large baking tray, covered with silver foil.
I used white icing to stick it all together, and then went over a few lines with chocolate icing.
I am VERY messy - so don't look too closely at my lines!!
The roof was a little tricky, with the gable piece at the front and a chimney.
The tiles are Golden Grahams cereal - but I would never make a tiler would I ? With a roof like this I should be on rogue traders!!
I used liquorice allsorts, jelly beans and little ghost sweets to decorate.
My favourites are the little graves, with gingerbread headstones and a little mound of brown sugar!!
The icing on the tray is green IRL, but the camera hasn't picked up the colour.
