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.

I was reviewing some post of how i could get back my husband then, i saw a testimony shared by Marina Choas about a spell caster named Dr. PADMAN I contacted Marina Chaos to confirm about how Dr. PADMAN helped her and she clarified everything to me of how he helped her and that gave me the courage to get in touch with Dr. PADMAN for help. Dr. PADMAN assured me that my days of sorrows will be over within 48hours after he has finished with his work. I followed his instructions he gave to me because i had the believe, faith, hope and trust in him. Verily i say to you today that i and my husband are back together and i can proudly say and testify to the world of what Dr. PADMAN did for me.

  25. I had struggle relationship with my husband in the past which led to divorce with my first husband. After i and my ex husband got divorced, i had another chance to re-marry again and just 5 years of my second marriage there was another divorce which almost killed me emotionally. I stayed for another two years been unmarried and a single mother. Honestly I wasn't really happy it because every woman need a man in her life, there was a time i saw my first husbands photo and i realized how much i loved him and have missed him. I tried to get to him but i was told that he moved on with his life and we may never been together again. I wept bitterly that night thinking i have lost the man that i have had so much love for. I asked for advise on what to do and a friend of mine gave me a contact of Osasu Solution Temple, i consulted him and to his very best with his powerful spells he helped me with a Reunion Marriage Love Spell to returned my ex husband back to me, in just 9 days i had enchanter with a spiritual reunion prayers with priest Osasu everything turn around for good in my life, I am now happily living with my first husband again and sort out the divorce issues. with the help of Osasu temple, his a man of wisdom and care. Thanks and i appreciate all the help you have rendered to get my ex husband back into my life again.

  26. Get your ex back using love spells that will make your ex-lover to think about you, miss you, call you & want to be in a relationship with you again.” My husband left me for another woman and i wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called Dr Olumba, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to Dr Olumba . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Olumba for help now..Here’s his contact, WhatsApp him: +2348124774363
