Help me create this shape out of gingerbread...
« on: November 19, 2019, 07:35:15 pm »
This might seem a little ambitious, but I really love to push myself each year with challenging gingerbread shapes. I decided that I want to try to recreate a fountain that I love in my city. I'm stumped on how I could create the main bowl of the fountain out of gingerbread. It's not just a bowl shape, but has curves and lips to it.

Ideas I have so far are draping dough over a vintage bowl and baking to achieve the shape. Let me know if you have any other suggestions!

Wow!  What a great shape try and recreate in gingerbread!

I think I'd create/bake the disc shape (flat and round) and the bowl shape separately, and then try to combine after they are baked.  Perhaps create the two shapes, bake, glue together, and then drape the entire shape with another piece of rolled gingerbread clay, to try and achieve the look of one piece?
