It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

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,
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 so awesome! You did a great job on it too, much better than I would ever be able to pull off.
