Learn the advanced techniques of using soft gingerbread cookies and edible structural supports to create a tudor style house with cantilevered detached room, movable hinged window and door, curved roof, gelatine and isomalt glass and landscaping with herb shrubs and trees.
Students will roll, cut, bake, trim and seal the base walls, and work on the door and window hinges before gluing the base. They will be introduced to the concept of “framing” the house, using edible support studs, beams and joists to make cantilever structures and to support several stories above the base. They will learn how to make super clear gelatine glass and how to frame the window and make the casement for the gelatine glass. Students will also learn how to work with curved roofs and mold gingerbread, how to prep window openings before pouring isomalt, and how to prep herbs to use as shrubs, plants and trees for landscaping purposes.
