Nativity Gingerbread Stable
Posted by dottybug, 08 Jan, 2012
I always make a gingerbread house every year. I will admit I cheat and buy kits, but I always try to put my own mark on it rather than making it look like the picture on the box. I adapted this kit bought from Aldi to make a stable by removing one of the front pieces. I iced it together using yellow royal icing and crumbled up some shredded wheat for the hay. I added a battery powered tealight to the hole at the back using icing to adhere it. this provided a lovely little glow inide the stable. The figures are made from fimo, however another cheat, as I bought these from ebay. But they can easily be made if you have the time. I did plan to put matchmakers on the roof to look like wood but I couldnt find them anywhere.
