First I had to 1) figure out how to make a dome and 2) hoped it would work. I baked the gingerbread over a metal bowl - and it worked!
We went through 2 lbs. of powered sugar to make the royal (rock hard glue like) icing to make it stick. Added a few details...tic tac toe game table, pine trees, fence and bonfire. And ta-da!
Then off to Connor Prairie we went!
We just got back from the Gingerbread Awards & Reception. The creations were amazing! We didn't win any awards, except a certificate acknowledging our hard work - and some ideas for next year!
