Thank you! I was worried the trees wouldn't turn out to great. The melted snowman was almost accidental. I didn't have any marzipan or fondant to make him with, only the icing, which I knew would become a puddle. So I went with it!

So I saw the challenge for this month and figured I'll make it not only my first entry into a Craftster challenge but my first gingerbread house. I've done more than my share of baking but no real decorating or anything quite this elaborate. I wanted to do a classic simple design. And in the end it came out a bit more simple than i wanted, what with time running out and my procrastination skills. I just clicked some random link on google for the gingerbread recipe and crossed my fingers! It worked well but I tweaked it a bit so I'm not sure how the actual recipe it. It was more of a guideline. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Childrens-Gingerbread-House/Detail.aspx The roof tiles were of some sugar cookie dough I had frozen and dyed varying shades of blue. I used squished cupcakes for the conical shape of the trees and the shrubs and piped icing onto those. Everything i made was from scratch except the cake mix. I used two types of icing. Standard royal icing for glue and the snowy base and when I made the cupcakes I still have plenty to eat so I mixed up some frosting which I later dyed and used for all the piping. Which turned out to actually be the best frosting ever. Make some. Trust me. http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen/recipes/desserts/thate28099s-the-best-frosting-ie28099ve-ever-had// The stepping stones were a mix of the frosting, nutella and caramel. I didn't have any brown coloring. Cheesy Snowman arms are thyme and carrot noses are from some leftover candy corn. And finally a dusting of powdered sugar.
