« on: January 07, 2011 12:01:31 PM »

it's his house, so it counts, right? Lately, I've been obsessed with Dr. Who and started doing a normal house for this challenge, but then my friend asked why I don't just do a TARDIS gingerbread house? so I took the idea and ran with it,
BUT
This is my first-ever gingerbread house (that didn't come in a box) since 7th grade (1998). I have been learning how to flood cookies, so I decided that I wanted to cover the gingerbread with blue Royal Icing.
the door sign is made of White Chocolate and was written on with permanent marker (non-edible, obviously) and the call sign letters were written in white chocolate in my very shaky hand. (I really need to practice my hand-writing skills in icing and chocolate...)
so, without further ado, here are the pictures:
Close up of door sign:






I hope you enjoy! I had fun making it, and learning new tricks among other things, and I came to the realization that I don't care for the taste of gingerbread cookies. I'll stick to plain ol' sugar cookies!

This is fantastic! I too have been a little "doctor-centric" as of late and had to click on this bad boy. I eat the presentation of the photo too. The lighting from above and then reflected up from the foil base give the tardis a bit of an eerie feel. I can just imagine Rory, Amy, and The Doctor just inside. Maybe River Song is stalking around the back? ...Spoilers.... So Rocks!

Thank you so much for your compliments!
believe it or not, the windows and the light on top were probably the easiest part of this whole thing.
The windows are wax paper cut to size, and "glued" on with royal icing, and (my fav part) the light on top is actually a blue bottle neck cut off the bottle (it was propel), and I used white chocolate to "glue" it in place. the LED lights wouldn't stay up inside of it, so I wedged an icing tip (the white plastic part that goes inside the bag) and wound the LED lights around it. I'm going to try to make a better one next year (like, actually making cut-outs from cardboard or something so that all 4 sides are the same. I free-handed this one.)

Thank you (again!) so much for your compliments!

actually, I let my SO with his monstrosities he calls hands squeeze it. it made him feel like a macho man. :-) it all managed to fit inside my cookie jar and me and my SO and our 2 roommates munched on it for a good while. (the reason I took it apart so soon after I made it is because I needed part of my icing coupler that I used to rig the lights in the top. I had to make cookies the next day, and needed my coupler!)  Grin
Other Half: OMG- That is soooo cool! But how do you eat it?
Me: Big Bang two?

actually, I had so much icing on it (I kept thinking, it needs more icing, it might fall apart!) that I couldn't even do any damage to it even with a hammer! That's why I let my SO help me out.
(and you wouldn't believe the strutting he did afterward. I should have recorded it, and posted it on here somehow. I laughed until my sides hurt!)

Thanks for all the great comments guys!
I'm already planning for it next year. I'll make it better next year.  Grin

I just did a doctor who birthday cake, and we were discussing how to make a Tardis.  This method came up.  Yours looks RAAR grr ugggh.  I don't think I'd've done mine justice.  I'm with you on the icing thing, though.  I was paranoid with mine, too.
