This is my first gingerbread house and I had so much fun making it!  I had ideas of what I wanted but I pretty much winged it.  I'm so proud, I can't bring myself to throw it away yet, lol.  Hope you all enjoy! 


Full View


Pathway and view of the well


Penguins ice skating  Cheesy


Trees are made of sugar cones and one is a sucker.  The well is candy cane, sugar cone and wafer cookie with caramel steps.  Lamp posts are soft canes and gumdrops.  Pathway is made of caramels.  The pond is made of poured sugar and the penguins came off of push suckers!

Thanks for taking a peek!!

Did you make that candy cane tree, because I am just in love with it and the icing on it is a great touch.
