How to make Wrought Iron Fencing

How to make wrought iron fencing for your gingerbread house, using edible Re-bar!

Edible Re-Bar! This is the coolest thing.  The spaghetti acts as re-bar providing reinforcement. This is a great idea for fences. Color the frosting black/gray for the look of wrought-iron





 Royal icing and black gel coloring



 Mix well



 Fill large Pastry Bag with black/gray Royal Icing (using a large pastry bag is important to allow enough room for your piece of spaghetti to be pushed completely into the bag of icing in order to cover well)



 Use a Wilton Tip #5(spaghetti fits thru it and allows for frosting to cover spaghetti)



 Lay spaghetti on wax paper, on a cookie sheet



 Push spaghetti into pastry bag, thru the tip



Slightly twist the spaghetti to coat then gently squeeze the pastry bag, slowly pulling out the spaghetti



 Continue to slowly pull out the spaghetti



 Lay on cookie sheet to dry



 After several hours remove from cookie sheet



 Cut off spaghetti end with scissors



 Cut off spaghetti end with scissors



 Cut spaghetti/rebar into desired lengths



 Place a drop of Royal Icing at end of spaghetti/rebar



  Place "fence posts" at each end of fence



  Place a drop of Royal Icing at desired spot for "fence stringers"



Place "fence stringers"; Let dry



After each fence section is dry, place onto your gingerbread display where desired, using more Royal Icing to keep in place, and adding a little swirl on the bottom and top ends of the stringers (covering the raw spaghetti ends)
