:bulletblue:Contests:
:star:"Piparkoogi maania 2011" ("Gingerbread Mania 2011") [link] (about the contest & other entries in the same category)
:trophy: Results: 1st place
:star: "The most beautiful gingerbread 2011" by Õhtuleht [link]
:bulletblack: Results: nothing. ;p I cant belive the winner was decided through how high the pics were rated... I mean... It was possible to give multiple votes for yourself and rate down others. :<
:bulletblue:Size: the tray ⌀30cm, height to horns 19cm
:bulletblue:Time: ~68 hours during 2 weeks + 4 hours on the barely noticable clock drawing on the tray
:bulletblue:Ingredients:
~600g gingerbread
~200g caramel candy
~300g glaze
+crushed peanuts and chocolate sprinkles
eyes are made of crushed blue M&M's

Honestly... I feel a bit guilty for having to compete in the 11-18 year old category... D: I mean... The things what a 11 year old and 18 year old make isnt that... Comparable. :/

Yeaa.... So THIS is what Ive been keeping myself busy with for the last two weeks. :dummy:

Wanted to make sth different from all the regular over-glazed ginger houses. ;p

Basically, this is made out of lil ginger cubes and sticked together with *lotsandlotsandlots* of CARAMEL! :la: + filled with cocoa glaze. First made it in three bigger parts and then connected them together with *hellofalotmore* caramel. Thats why the body is so... square-ish. :I

Mmm~ The decorating part was my favorite~ Can you tell? :D

Details~


Happy Dragons Year! :heart:

This is simply amazing. If modeling in clay is tough, modeling with food must be a frigging nightmare.

I have always had a lot of respect for people that work on this kind of art... more so when you know your art is gonna be eaten. :P

It's probably too old for consumption by the time I've seen this picture, but this was expertly crafted. Love the amount of detail incorporated into this delectable dragon.

Gorgeous piece; the detail is just outstanding! Such intricate icing... I'm not sure I'd have the hand-eye co-ordination, or the patience, to produce such fabulous results. :nod:
