As this would be on public display, we were asked to keep things consistent with a quaint mountain village. Part of me wanted to do the haunted house thing, every town has the one
creepy house that the kids don't dare approach, but I decided to go with the rich folks up the hill. Turns out I could
have gotten away with the haunted house anyway, as another student decided to do a white trash minimart/bait store - complete with a
homeless guy sleeping on a decrepit couch out back. Oh well, I'll just have to do my creepy house later.
In the meantime, I built this:
The windows are made of sugar, the roof is white chocolate tiles. The left side of the house was fairly plain, except for the little porch, where two little marzipan kittens are wrestling.
The back of the house had a picture window and two upstairs windows, but was otherwise pretty plain. The house is a little dilapitated.
The bay window, on the right side of the house. Two little cats here, one on the porch and one mewling to get in the first floor window. The bushes here were made by pushing green marzipan through a strainer.
An aerial view, with a small dusting of powdered sugar snow. The gatework across the roof and around the little porch was leftover lacework from my wedding cake project.
And a corner view of the house shows how precariously the white chocolate posts were holding up the roof of the porch.
