The highlight of the decoration is the ombre swag piping on the roof.
The trick to piping even swag on the sides of this house is to first trace onto the finish using something symmetrical like a round cookie cutter.
Use a sharp pointed object or the tip of a craft utility knife to etch guidelines into the surface then trace over it with icing.

The inside of the chimney is an excellent hiding place for candy.
