Quilted Gingerbread House
This gingerbread house is decorated with quilted (a.k.a harlequin) royal icing pattern. See how it’s made here: Quilted Gingerbread House. The figurines are made of modeling chocolate. Watch the Modeling Chocolate Figurines Video Tutorial.

You may recognize this character from a classic 80’s movie. His face and the word bubble are made of modeling chocolate. Instructions on how this word inlay technique are in the book, Cake Decorating with Modeling Chocolate.
Queen of Hearts in Gumpaste
The Queen of Hearts in my Alice in Wonderland Gingerbread Castle is made of gumpaste and piped royal icing.
Quilted Button Cake
