Gingerbread Christmas Bakery - a Custom Dollhouse Part 4

 The 2021 Gingerbread dollhouse is done! This year I had a request from Darby and Francesca for a little bakery/candy shop. Great idea girls!

This was a fun project. The end product is so whimsical and full of joy. It's just an awesome dollhouse to make. 
This is a 1/12 scale dollhouse. It measures about 15 1/4" tall x 10 1/8" across the front x 11 1/4" deep before adding the "icing."


All the little candy came from Hobby Lobby. Some was Christmas tree ornaments. Some come from the jewelry department. I usually start collecting candy early on in August.  
The icing is made with light weight spackling paste straight from the hardware store. It's piped on with disposable pastry bags and pastry tips.  Apply the candy into the spackling paste while it's still wet and let dry completely overnight. I also us candy moles for trim. You can use anything to fill those including sparkle, caulk, hot glue, silicone, resin…. anything you are comfortable using will work.




To add a little more sparkle and whimsy we use this plastic fake snow called Buffalo Snow. You can also use glitter.










This little wooden display cabinet case is from Miniatures.com. I had this feeling from the beginning telling me not to tempt it myself. Sometimes you just have to listen to that little voice. I am really happy with this piece. It's filled with a variety of cakes and baked goods. 


The cupboard is a piece from Hobby Lobby. I liked the style and I knew it would be perfect behind the counter. I painted it green and also with other little Christmas details. 



That's the Bakery!  I hope you enjoyed following along. And that you will try one of these gingerbread dollhouses too. They are really a great project at Christmas time.  
Thank you again Darby and Francesca. I hope you will love your new dollhouse! 
Merry Christmas!
