Here is a pic of my USS Flagg gingerbread house I made after last Christmas. My family has a gingerbread house competition each year and I decided to make ole' #99. I made this using home-made gingerbread and graham crackers mostly. I painted on the frosting once I watered it down so it would spread. The Black for the deck was impossible to water down without it separating back into purple and other colored particles. The gray for the sides was pretty easy to make. It was applied using one of the frosting pouches with a flat tip.
Notice the deck numbers are placed properly accoring to naval specifications (not the toy specifications). I added a graham cracker Skystriker as well. I only added one elevator to match the toy and used pretzels (I went through a TON of them as I 'ate' them in a very detailed way so they would connect with each other. The radar net is a piece of Trident gum trimmed down. I used various candies (mostly ball shaped) around the carrier as well.
I will post more pics as I dig them up. I wanted to upload this last year, but I was on vacation and didn't get the time. Hope you guys like this! Merry Christmas
and Yo Joe!
(Happy Holidays to those who do not celebrate Christmas)
EDIT: More Pictures!!! (see post #4!!!) UPDATE:
This year I did Castle Grayskull. It didn't turn out at all what I hoped for. It took me forever to do what I did because my kids kept making me help them. The best part is the skull face above the drawbridge. I carved that by hand with a steak knife for an hour.
A few years ago I did a Gingerbread Star Destroyer. I posted that over at TheForce.net . Check it out HERE
