I am going to show you how to decorate a
gingerbread house I personally don’t like the eat a
gingerbread house after its been sitting around as a
decoration so I just buy the kits and for the one time in my life that I
can enjoy the decorating without the the
baking part that I actually don’t really care for I jump on the
opportunity I recommend that you decorate your
gingerbread house unassembled so you place your parts on a cookie
sheet and you decorate the windows everything before you assemble it will be drawing and you will be able to handle it and you’ll have a lot easier time decorating flat then
sideways depending on the design that you want the windows that are pressed into that
dough may not work for you so I wanted to have some shutters and so
if I could shutters on the outside of this it won’t work so I remeasured have the actual window part be this
wide so you can just draw a line to have
something to follow and we’re gonna flood these windows blue
and then I’ll be able to come back after and add my shutters there we go so those are my side pieces, for the front door you just follow the press line that they do on the house and outline that in white icing and then flood it. You can build it up
to get a little bit more for a bump on it try to keep your icing inside that line though and then once this is dry will be able
to decorate the door. There we go. Now for the side parts I’m gonna
flood the windows I had remeasured the window size that I want so I’ve got a very faint blue for the windows. This you probably don’t want to have too much of a bump. just and a toothpick to spread it out or whatever you use you go through all the windows so that they’re dry and we can at the
window mouldings & the shutters and all that. there we go. here’s the door I’ve got a brown EDIBLE marker I’m
gonna draw some wood grain on the door just random lines you can rotate your cookie if your angle isn’t good I’ve masked the house with tape Scott towels and I’m dusting the door with brown air brush here might tape this hiding the door I want the door to get colored so there on that side. this way and now we will put a bit of a gold colour in the middle of the door there we go lets take off our masking and there’s the house a nice front door. A quick way to accent your gingerbread house front door is with the a wreath star tip and just a simple circle and there we have a wreath and you can drop in some red sprinkles to get looking a little bit more festive and there you go you might want to just push around the sprinkles they stuck a bit on my door
the airbrush remains a bit tacky and there we go here are the two sides of the gingerbread
house one is completed I’m gonna do the other
one while you’re watching so on the top of the windows I’m just doing
some shell dots. So your dot pull dot pull dot pull dot that’s it I wanna have some shutters on each side of the window I’ve got a
tip in it is a Ateco #48 and I’m putting the spiky edges to the top I want to have a different look you can stay a bit away
from the blue I’m working and red just to ensure that it
doesn’t bleed into my blue you have got my boo boo stick sharpening the edge but it doesn’t look so pulled so on each side I’m and as you see it’s hiding the window square that had been punched
by the manufacture of this gingerbread house cuz I didn’t want to
make the windows as big as they had made them so you can leave these
crust and then we’ll be able to add the other
little details that i did and those little hearts and the little wood there going the other way. Alright so here this is the middle so I’m just doing a swirl and that is it and then a dot and a dot now I need to work this way to make my heart’s so it is a dot and pull dot pull to make these little hearts gonna have to move my cookie something
so that I’m at a right angle so you can get the hearts at this window so here at the window frame just a little detail but its cute you know I was looking at shutters on cottages they all seem to have this little cut
out obviously can’t do a cut-out but I can add. Now I’m switching up my tip
to a # 101 and I’m just going to be adding a little line along the
bottom and top of the shutters, just like that now here it doesn’t look right you can just use your
booboo stick to fix it you can almost sculpt royal icing when it is the right consistency. you really can get it to go the way you
want just going to flip it over so I can work there we go. The kit came with a lot of candies but I didn’t really like the look if you don’t
want it you know if you wanna to practice icing obviously
it’s not with candies that you’re going to do that. There are my two sides once this
is dry I’m going to just do a little of royal icing here by royal icing on the edges have the
windows here and I’ll add some whites and sugar to make like snow that landed on the window how to do
the chimney so here’s one side fashion I did on my show you how I did
it on the other side company both sides
decorated some all I’m doing is some random by blogs to look like the stones actually gonna
switch 0.2 fire one so that the law group look a little bit smoother
to look like a stone so and you don’t want them touching want
them all random shapes leave a vote no space so they’re not
touching cuz we wanna have the cement from the from me the stones their in between added
after with a toothbrush a toothpick toothbrush toothpick this flat memo with no actually doesn’t matter if it’s
not perfect this post look like stone some stones are not perfect rehear
minute 1 on the age me as well there we go so once this has had time to cross the
bay will be able to test it with some brown and black synonym of slide the middle parts you can grab it from the top turned to
set it aside to dry here’s the chimney so you can start off
with the brown just because it’s the lighter color and
you’re gonna shoot the brown from one side and the black from the other so
that we get a little bit misleading get through color for the stones fact machine here on inside the brown can we go home how much how to draw from
black into my hairbrush sheet on the paper until you see it
getting darker to see please see the black half lip
piercing around so that you’re shooting here we go can use stones will look more realistic and now once this is dry
we’re gonna come in and fill communal areas with some white spot from now on just with my white coming in and filling in yes and this is to look like cement no give me a somewhat realistic to me the kick came with fat little gumdrop
some cutting them in half Khan a look if you flip them upside down
kinda look like tulips okay so here I am sticking on a
candy so who put on is rounding into one’s course I pick a side where there’s a bump on the candy in its
not became flip it over swiped the icing off with your finger for let’s try again much better I could feel it resisting and now just a little bit of icing metal stick
and gumball don’t think I have enough and that darn a whole that little bomb
that I had from before yes affecting my gumball reflected
actually 10 gumball in there there we go alright now I wanna add these flowers my gumdrop garden I’m just doing some stands and some
leaves and fill the leaves as you go year you a little drop provide the same and then flipped the gumdrop around mer
we know a little flower yes space them I want be turning out when this way yes when he
ran to slower it a little bit and the don’t worry about the bottom of the
house that’s always kind in some snow be visible we found him to school after
my house a bit so I can work some well i sync blue pressure flowers on and then the weeks out for the rest of the decoration
really do whatever you want I just a whole
bunch swirls star use fill in the area your hearts taught for we go from your you frame okay now here I Y from the outside and I just
couldn’t be swirl and I’m built off and then around this can you get a bunch
darts Heidi use down facing selective look a little bit cleaner and also there’s a punch their from makers me like a circle there I wanted to hide every now from the outside again making this other side and again I’m just of a swirl doing some here come royal icing polls thank God and then I had done just dots
all around it I mean it’s whatever you wanna do done bigger and smaller the edge of the cookie will be hitting
with the roof so don’t knock yourself out to the edge new now so they’re somewhat the same the only other thing that’s missing is
the door wrong I nato schools well i think im transfers so stick one of those on here sprinkle them put a little thought a voice saying we
go and now gonna work on this one because
this is my better there’s always a front I like that one
better so on this one here we’re gonna do a test I wanted you are been overridden on the on the reef to swirls from there a ribbon on to Marie so once this is dry again to put a
little bit if i sync there just to get some sanding sugar on the window cells just one putting things together that
have to stand up you really have to get your icing right cross its gonna make this absolutely nightmarish now you
can see look standing up holding up this is basically
some and edible cement you want has to be super
stiff not parts stiff wit alright now I’ve got some piping bag with a simple round tip and we’re going
to prepare those gingerbread men Ste can be putting together the gingerbread house here’s my back I’ve got a pretty fact tippin you apply your Symantec you can be pretty generous and now here all along you’re gonna hafta count
on the fact that you’re cement its is nice and hard hold everything icing consistency is key here no hurry and get your fourth side on so that everything can kind of be welded together don’t worry about looking at on this is
mostly hidden so the kids come with this base that
kinda stands up the whole thing but it’s not really attractive some you can avoid using it you know we don’t just leave this for a
little bit until kind of some instinct either you can with your finger remove excess
that you don’t to that you don’t need after we can come
in type fast start a person thing something
a little bit more decorative there we go so we’re just going to let this dry as for the house she and now I’ve got 48 echo in and Jess from the bottom I’m hiding the
icing I me and to the cooking I’m doing a
