Glad you like! For the silo, we made about 20 circle cookies and stacked them. Then, we took a cheese grater and "sanded" the edges. We discovered this trick last year and it really works well! If the edges of the house get a bit warped in the baking process, just grate the edges flat so that all the pieces fit. Also, I forgot to mentioned that we made the shrubbery and trees out of a rice-crispies-like recipe. Instead of rice crispies, we used various "twig" cereals to achieve the right texture. Add green food coloring and a sprinkle of powered sugar, and there you go! I wish I had taken pictures of the process, but I didn't realize I would be posting here.
This year my fiance and I decided to make a gingerbread BARN from scratch. I have wanted to try out sculpting with marzipan, so we made the animals out of that. They are so cute! (If I don't say so myself.) Hope you enjoy. The pics didn't come out the greatest, but here they are.
Thank you! I wanted to post more pictures of the process, but ran out of time. This was my first time making anything out of duct tape like this. It was a little tricky at times, but I like the end result.
Here is my duct tape creation ... a zebra-striped pink raincoat! I have been needing a raincoat for awhile now, and thanks to the power of duct tape, I now have one! Absolutely love the hot pink / zebra print combo.
