My last class in culinary school was Culinary Showpieces, which is just what the name suggests. Smiley We had to do gingerbread houses, which was such a fun winter project!

I did this with four other people in my group. Smiley Details include:

-Royal icing EVERYWHERE
-Colored sugar windows (I forget how we did that)
-An ice-cream cone tree
-Meringue smoke for the chimney
-Powdered sugar/royal icing snow

'Twas a labor of love and got us an A. Smiley

Wow, that is one amazing gingerbread house! I couldn't take a bite from it, I would feel as if I am destroying something valuable. Cheesy

Thanks! Actually, most gingerbread house showpieces are made to not be eaten- a lot of culinary showpieces really can't be. The gingerbread is hard as a rock, and the royal icing firms up like concrete and is made with raw egg! :3

Thank you!
