This was SO much fun to make!  The house is all crisp gingerbread and the sculpted base is a softer, more cake-like gingerbread.  There's buttercream, royal icing, fondant and chocolate all over the place, prettied up with sugar flowers, fudge rocks and a teenty m&m doorknob.  Even the grass is sugar!  Ground gingernut cookies, walnuts and cocoa made the crumbly dirt and corinthian chocolate sticks made the support columns.  The 'retaining walls' are dressed with chocolate bark.

Some in progress shots...crumb coating, adding fondant, putting the house together etc

Best gingy house I've seen!

I'd drink some of Alice's magic potion and come live there!  Simply adorable.

This is a great gingerbread cottage!!  And, I've got say, I was please to see that you had made a mess on the counter you were working on.  I told my husband, "see, I'm not the only one!  It is normal!!"  Grin

Great detail in the foliage!  I also appreciate that the house looks not all "straight" but somewhat sloped and curvy, just like a real stucco-d cottage!  Nice work
