I was just sitting here, reminiscing about the years I spent going to school to be a pastry chef. We made so many tasty things! Last year we made gingerbread houses around Christmas. Of course, with it being a professional kitchen, we had a larger variety of tools and foods available to us. We made some amazing things!
I think this year I'm going to make another gingerbread house, and use all the cool ideas I got from last year! Do you have any suggestions? I'd love to hear them!
Here are some pictures of the gingerbread bakery that my group made.
|The roof was made from sliced marshmallows.|
|I made these cute little marshmallow wedding cakes for in the window!|
|The window was made from gelatin sheets.|
|The tree was a paper cone. I used a star tip and royal icing to make the branches.|
And here are some pictures of the other gingerbread houses that were made in the class. We were making a gingerbread village.
|The church. I absolutely LOVE the design they made for it!|
|The jail. Aren't those windows so cute!|
|This was probably my favorite one, the school house. I love how they used the Wheaties for the roof! They also used little candy rocks to make the chimney.|
|The train station.|
