This elaborate gingerbread house was created by John Lerner and was the first-place winner, adult category, in the Cleveland Botanical Garden's annual gingerbread house competition. It is titled "Carson House, Eureka, Ca."
The majority of this display's details are made of brown fondant and white royal icing. The decorative flowers are made from gumpaste, which can be sculpted like clay before it hardens to a porcelain-like state. | Photo: Wright Creative | thisoldhouse.com
This was made using a classic Victorian gingerbread blueprint. Jelly candy rocks make up the chimney, and chocolate fondant with corn starch snow make up the roof. Yellow edible paper creates the glowing windows. Created by Kenna N. of Louisville, KY.
