Here's what I run into trying to make something like a gingerbread whatever...

 

This is how I see it turning out in my head:

 

And this is how it turns out in real life:


A bit of a discrepancy, lol.

But yours is so much more avant garde!  Predictability is over-rated in my book. :cool:

LOL, those pictures weren't mine, I just found a couple that represented my g-bread experiences.

 

So far, the barn is holding together. But since the kit didn't include near enough icing, I need to make some up to finish. The barn-raising continues!!!

With our turkey kit, we made egg white and powdered sugar icing and it sets up like cement.

Just beat egg whites until stiff and stir in powdered sugar until it is a thick paste, and put in a baggie. Snip off a tiny corner of the bag and you are good to go.

Can't wait to see the barn!

Since we don't plan on eating any of it, I used craft glue to do the walls...hoping that dries and holds better than royal icing.

 

To be continued.....
