This hefty dessert centerpiece contained over 80 pounds of gingerbread house cookie dough, 75 pounds of royal icing and 60 pounds of rice treats as well as piles of cookie sand, caramels, chocolate, and sour fruit strips.
The trickiest part about engineering a cookie structure of this magnitude is keeping track of all the many parts. Video instructions on how to design and code DIY paper templates for custom gingerbread house designs can be found in the following kit:
The inlaid vine pattern, chocolate ruffle, and rainbow dot candy effect were all accomplished with royal icing. I show how to accomplish these designs in the videos that come with the kit, Gingerbread House Decoration and Construction.
This structure was transported in parts then assembled on site.
I show how to make the round brick towers in Gingerbread House Decoration and Construction.
These were all the uppermost parts of the gingerbread castle.

The baked in twisted window frames, twisted door frames, overlaid windows are all in video tutorial in Gingerbread House Dough Recipe & Baking Instructions.
My icing recipes and video tutorials on piping are in this kit
