Using Fondant and Gum Paste to Decorate Gingerbread Houses

We found some really amazing Gingerbread Houses and Gingerbread Cookies that are highly detailed and decorated with fondant and gum paste (visit here). Fondant is made from water and sugar and sometimes lemon is added to flavor the fondant and I have fondant where almond is added.  Fondant is used for covering pastries and confections and creating a smooth surface for adding decorations and if you watch any of the popular tv shows like Amazing Wedding Cakes, My Fair Wedding David Tutera and Cake Boss, you see magnificent cakes and nearly every single cake is covered in fondant or has fondant decorations. If you are creative or want to try your hand and creating some super neat Gingerbread Houses this year then why not try working with fondant and seeing just what is possible. Like David Tutera says, “don’t just dream, but dream BIGGER”! Let your imagination soar!

Gingerbread Bichon Frise Dog – CUTE!

I know that it is still September but I am ready to get started on Christmas and the Holidays! I am looking for new Gingerbread items to decorate with and for me, what could be better than this Gingerbread Bichon Frise puppy dog and I have my own fluffy Bichon – Luna and I love Gingerbread so combining the two into this ornament is FAB! This cutie is part of the Joy To The World Diva Dog Gingerbread Series ornaments. That’s right, Gingerbread can come in all forms and ornaments are for sure a great way to enjoy Gingerbread even if they are not home-made or baked! This cute Bichon Frise dog wears a festive Gingerbread vest complete with candy canes and gumdrops. You can find nearly all dog breads with their Gingerbread attire at Holidaytreasures.
