Chocolate & Cookie Waterfall

Gingerbread House Waterfall Tutorial
Here is how I made the chocolate waterfall for the Wonka Candy Factory Gingerbread House.

First, I created a DIY paper gingerbread house template for the whole structure.

Once the DIY paper gingerbread house template was complete, I baked a whole bunch of half moon gingerbread cookies using my gingerbread house dough recipe.

Then I started stacking them, one by one. I used some chocolate royal icing to adhere them to the sides of the gingerbread candy factory.

I stacked the half moon cookies all the way up the side of the gingerbread house candy factory wall.

Then I covered the outlying parts with painters tape to protect the finished work from being splattered and began to pipe a runny batch of chocolate royal icing down the sides of the cookies.

I repeated this step several times until the entire stack of cookies looked like it was cascading with melted chocolate.

Up top, at the mouth of the chocolate waterfall, chocolate royal icing flows from a 3D cookie tunnel in the wall. Two gumpaste Oompa Loompas throw chocolate malt balls into the chocolate melting pot.
