Anyone interested in doing a gingerbread house thread - Page 16

post #226 of 492
I finally have finished allll my gingerbread for now. icon_lol.gif I had a hectic Christmas Season and was not able to do anything other than my gift houses for family and friends (posted in my gallery) so I was left with the pieces I had made for my personal house. In January, I decided that I would finish it anyway... who says Gingerbread is just for Christmas? I liked the results so much, I entered the house in the Queen City (Cincinnati) Sugar Arts Show and it took First Place in Techniques No on a Cake (Other) and Best of that division. I had so much fun making a spring version of gingerbread! Just wanted to share.

Thanks so much! It was a lot of fun to stray from the norm.

Thanks for the link! When you posed the question last time, I was in the throes of a sick mother in the hospital so I had forgotten to check them out. The cookies are so beautiful! Such talent!

HI!
I just stumble accross this thread, and don't have time right now to read the 16 pages, but I just wanted to say I'm sohappy to see gingerbread houses being discussed. I love making them; and they're what got me started with making cookies, cupcakes etc. There's something so charming about them... I have to admit (ask any of my friends), I'm a gingerbread fanatic icon_redface.gif ... I collect every gingerbread book I can get my hands on, and own all of them that are for sale on the market right now.
Teresa Layman is my absolute favourite! Below is one of the houses I made from her designs. I wrote about her here:

Hi Sweetopia! Welcome to our humble little thread! icon_biggrin.gif I know what you mean about collecting the GB books -- I have quite the collection myself! icon_lol.gif I love Laymen's books as well but lately my fave is Steven Stellingwerf's "The Gingerbread book." So many cool ideas!!

Your work is beautiful!! I can't wait to see more of the GB creations you made!! Cheers! icon_biggrin.gif

Nice gingerbread houses everyone!

Ryan, wow! What beautiful work!!
Would you mind sharing how you made the black shingles please? Did you use gumpaste, Black Jack gum or something else?
post #238 of 492
Thanks guys. I made the shingles using gumpaste. That time my first time using gumpaste and I used the wilton mix which wasn't very good in my experience. Next year will hopefully be better since I now know how gumpaste works.

I just rolled the gumpaste and then cut blocks using a pizza cutter.

Rats! icon_cry.gif I had not gotten notification of additional responses to this thread! Just stumbled upon RylanTy's awesome Lodge and sweetopia's piece of artwork as well. They are both beautiful!

RylanT, I have a lodge in my collection as well:

http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1168419

It's not even close to as amazing as yours as it leans more toward the whimsical side, but evokes (I hope) the same feeling of warmth and the desire to go inside and sit by a large stone fireplace.

I've been blessed to travel to Montana quite a few times... I love the Yellowstone Lodge as well as the Lodge in Glacier National Park. Your work reminds me of those buildings.
