Here is a picture from the 2007 National Gingerbread House Festival. I am looking for the plastic piece that forms the outline for the snowglobe. If anyone knows where I can get something like this please let me know here.

Forming the snow globe
by: Donna

The pieces are made of pastillage. They were quickly rolled out, cut to shape, then laid over a ball to dry. Pastillage dries fast so work quickly.

I'm so glad you realized the design was a snow globe. Most people (mainly adults) thought it was a crown.

Snow Globe
by: Annie

The arches were made from either pastiage or gum paste. The competition only allows edible materials in its gingerbread pieces. The gum paste will dry hard quite quickly (4-5 hours) while the pastiage could take up to 2 days to harden. Hope this helps.

Gingerbread snow globe

I think I can answer your question (but please don't be offended if I misunderstood it.) The white pieces that make up the globe of the snow globe appear to be made of pastillage, gum paste or another form of sugar craft to me, not plastic.

The baker/artist likely made pastillage, rolled it out, cut it, and then draped it over something circular (maybe something like a beach ball?) to dry.

It's a beautiful creation, isn't it?

If anyone knows more about this particular gingerbread snow globe, please let us all know.
