For Gingerbread construction, read Part 1 and Part 2.

Decorating
Because of the weather, we limited ourselves to whatever candy we could find at the Duane Reade across the street. Twizzlers ended up being perfect for roof shingles, but they were a pain to cut, first lengthwise and then in segments.

It was worth it. I love the roof!

Next, we added trees. The tree trunks are made of gingerbread and the leaves are different types of candy.

The arched stairs are constructed of cheerios marshmallow treats but they weren’t defined enough so I added Winterfresh gum.

We added power lines (candy canes and pull-n-peel twizzlers) and it’s done!
