Here is my Valentine's Day Gingerbread House! Isn't it sweet?

The main ingredients: LOVE & CONFECTION!








 For the roof I cut individual 1 1/2 " hearts, slightly overlayed them in rows on a flat piece of foil and gently pressed the them together. Then I carefully lifted the the tin foil and hearts and placed them on a curved tin foil form and baked them. As the hearts baked they infused themselves together. The two side walls were also baked on a curved form. The front and back walls are flat.

My sweet little snowman is made of gum paste. For the sparkle I brushed him with vodka and rolled him in disco dust. The scarf and hat are also gum paste.


For the candy decorations I used strawberry Whoppers, Good & Plenty, Sweet Tart Gummie Hearts, and pink heart sprinkles.



I used royal icing for the piping and the snow.



HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

  14. Do you sell the pattern for this house? I want to say I've seen a sloped roof line before but no pattern. I realize you'd have to lay the gingerbread over a can of some sort to bake. Really cute and love the hearts on the house.
