Almonds. Almond flakes make great shingles, you can either bake them in, if you are making your own gingerbread or attach them with bits of royal icing.

many options for roof shingles

I would use cereal wheat, pretzel sticks, candy that is to your liking, ganache is the best for frosting. But remember the sky is the limit

Gingerbread House Shingles
by: Kelly

You can make gingerbread house shingles (for either the roof or the house siding) using sticks of gum ("glued" together with royal icing) OR one of the edible clays like fondant or marzipan, rolled out thin and then cut into the desired shingle shape.

See our edible clays page for more info.

Does anyone else have any great ideas for how to make shingles for a gingerbread house?
