    No pity points allowed (even for baked fingers) - But I am certain yours will be great ---- there is no dumpy GB house, they are all fun and interesting.

    Incontinence, fortunately, is not a problem with emotes.

    Should I go ahead and post my pictures? I don't want anything to fall off/break/crash before getting a chance to post them.

    Ok, here goes nothing!

    Some of the things I used:
    Mini Shredded Wheat = roof
    Caramel Licorice = roof beams
    Sno Caps candy = roof
    Sour Green Apple candy = tree, bushes
    Pretzels = gate, sign post, windows
    Graham Crackers = nesting box
    Peanut M&M = coop base
    Gumdrops = coop base, sign & gate anchors
    Coconut = mixed in icing for snow
    Chick-O-Stick = for seed
    Peanut Butter Kiss = path

    I've never made one of these before but I'd do it again (DH is already asking me to make a BIG one for next year, lol). Learned a lot...like icicles are hard to make and no matter how careful you try to be when you touch some item, something is going to fall off. It took a lot of time, mostly because I've not worked with royal icing before.
