It's Gingerbread Time
The sky is the limit when it comes to comes to fun with gingerbread. Who says you have to stick to four walled structures?! If you can dream it your can build it. I got the idea for this gingerbread Eiffel Tower from my daughter Faith when she was in first grade. She loved the storybook character Madeline, so this is the house she helped build for Madeline.
We first cut out a template out of cardboard the made homemade gingerbread and cut out the pieces.
We baked the pieces and let them rest over night. We built the tower in three sections then decorated. A project we will always remember!
My Favorite Fall Cake
Looking for a cake that says fall without pumpkins?! Then this is the perfect cake. The cake is Italian Cream with butter cream layers. The outside is covered with fondant. There are bats flying overhead attached to the cake with coated floral wire.
Look closely at the tree for the textured tree bark. The Tree is also leaning to give the effect of a tree on a windy day. The leaves are blown about.
