Tada! Our gingerbread mansion in situ on the mantelpiece. It looks so much better all assembled than the separate pieces on the counter top. For a while there my front of the building looked more like the work of a five year old due to a way too narrow piping tip but with some touch-ups with the wider thingy it worked out well in the end.
Gelatin leaves for the windows, a string light and some additional icing in the joints and we have ourselves a deliciously smelling gingerbread casa.
