I created a Germanic-style house complete with Alpine shutters, timbering and window boxes.

Everything is edible except the candle inside which lights up the windows, and as it's the witches house, there are some gravestones lurking in the background...











Thanks for looking - happy baking!  Smiley

Is that cotton candy smoke in the chimney?!?   I think that is so clever.  I love your little house.  Thank you for sharing!  Smiley

How classic! I love the lime green icing, it really makes the details pop.

Thank you!

Yes the chimney smoke is chuppa chups cotton candy/candy floss, which turns into bubblegum when you chew it - interesting stuff. Smiley

Love this idea! There is always too much food to eat at Christmas for me to do a gingerbread house, but I am now considering borrowing your idea for a halloween project.
