Gingerbread Carousel

I'm not sure what inspired me to make this little confection but once I'd started I just couldn't put it down until I'd finished it! Would you believe that it took the best part of 3 nights in my sweatshop to create it...but it was worth it...or, at least I think it was!! :-))



3 gaily painted gingerbread horses, on candy poles, circle a cream & fondant iced centre & the top layer of gingerbread is topped with fondant iced gingerbread stars, cream & jelly beans. More jelly beans & cream decorate the edges of the bottom gingerbread base  & it measures 38mm to the top star.
It would make a welcome change from the more traditional gingerbread house at Christmas wouldn't it! To make the "real thing" would probably be a whole lot easier too:-))

most definitely worth the time to create it! Thanks for mentioning how long it took you; hate to think how long it would take the rest of us.
