LPBeier! I love your very own creation of the Gingerbread house in post #209!! And I love it when DC members post in this thread...especially the "home grown" variety of food art! Thank you, you talented lady. I agree with Zhizara...looks delicious!

Wouldn't these two gingerbread/sugarcookie trees look good next to it? Or maybe a couple of these cupcake trees...

Okay, here is one for you. It is a crocembouche, which is miniature cream puffs put together with caramel to form a "tree like shape" and then covered in spun caramel. This one was an actual wedding cake for a December 23rd wedding. The bride didn't want a traditional wedding cake nor a bride and groom on it. So DH decided we should have a couple of skiers on it! Everything is edible except the skiers and the board it is sitting on.

More great pics, Molly Anne.

Laurie, the tree looks like what would be found outside of a gingerbread house. The house is very cute and the tree looks fantastic!
