This is the Gingerbread house that I just entered for the NHS Phoenix 'Home Sweet Home' fundraising event. All gingerbread creations will be auctioned off on Dec. 7, 2013.

This was my first time making gingerbread, and of course, a gingerbread house.

The roof has fried peas (a Hispanic/Middle Eastern snack item). The walkway in front is imitation bacon bits. Lower level windows have gelatin sheet 'panes' and the upper windows are melted cinnamon or butterscotch candies.

Only the smell of gingerbread

The bacon bits are imitation and after being out for several weeks, have no smell. And the fried peas have no smell either...the house smells as a gingerbread house does with the combination of cinnamon, cloves and ginger.

I think the color of your Gingerbread house is beautiful, but I would never use peas and bacon. My idea of a Gingerbread house is the wonderful smells of ginger-not bacon bits!
