Please tell me you're a pastry chef or someone that I've seen on the Food Network - if not I'm going to be so depressed over my non-existant gingerbread skills in comparison.  That house is unbelievable - you need to enter that contest they have on food network for gingerbread houses!

Haha! That's sweet but nope. I work in Residential Interior Design in NYC & am just a novice baker.  I used Martha Stewart's recipes for both the gingerbread & the royal icing - she's kind of my go-to for no failers. And as far as entering a contest maybe next year if I can find one! Thanks for the compliment!

The Noguchi table base is made from fondant - 2 colors rolled together just like clay to get that variegated look. The top is poured sugar - I bent an old cookie cutter to get the shape right then poured the hot sugar mixture into the cutter on a silicon mat.

Thanks!

Oh.
My.
GOD.

I couldn't help but drool over the absolute fantasticness of this! This definitely ain't your grandma's gingerbread house (though some of it might be reminiscent of grandma's real house).

I'm so impressed by how much detail you worked into the house and all the little furniture pieces.

This gets a "This Rocks" x 100 for sure!

I had a dream last night that I shrunk down to scale and moved into to this swanky-sweet house.  I was sitting in the den smoking my pipe, sipping a martini and admiring the artwork.  It was way cozy and even the 'giant' people looking on from the exposed rear of the house didn't bother me.

That's hilarious. What a great dream! I almost wish I had a little mouse or something to inhabit it - just for a a day.  Grin
