Just a few things to do and the
gingerbread display will be finished.
FYI It takes about 14 egg whites,
1 & 1/2 large bags of powdered
sugar, 1 & 1/2 small containers
of cream of tartar to make one
of my gingerbread houses.
I need a gap in a section of my
candy cane fence where the front
walk will be. I cut the tops off
of 2 large candy canes.
I want my front path to end right
I squiggled a big log to set the
chocolate rocks in.
The same for the back walkway, it's
also ready for a tree.
I set the big tree and lamp post
in the front yard.
I am ready to put the ribbon
around the edge of the base.
My ribbon isn't wide enough so
I will use 2 kinds. I pinned the
lower ribbon the the back.
I did the same to the upper ribbon.
I got my candy cane humps ready.
I started on the side
I stuck the candy canes in. Same
thing all the way around.
(Wonky is just fine!)
I used the last of the frosting to make
snow drifts everywhere.

I saw a doe and her fawn
in the yard several times this
past spring and summer.
The glow of the tea light makes our
Santa look like he's standing in
front of a fireplace.
It was fun to make, but I missed
having little helpers.
Certainly not perfect,
but to us
it's confection perfection!

come to my blog and leave the sweetest,
