If you look up close at this yellow, white, and green fancy gingerbread house, you can see that the vine patterns are seamlessly inlaid into the royal icing.
All you need is a piping bag and toothpick.
This effect was achieved by piping dots of royal icing onto more wet icing and carefully dragging a toothpick through to create heart shapes, or in this case, vines.
To achieve this kind of effect, it’s necessary to decorate all the pieces of the kind of gingerbread house before assembly.
