Description: This gingerbread lighthouse and keeper's cottage is surrounded by ice cream cone and pretzel trees and a snow-drifted landscape. The lighthouse is constructed of gingerbread, lots of cinnamon and mint gum, candy cane poles, licorice handrails, gelatin windows, and a beacon of light perched inside the beacon. The keeper's cottage is constructed of gingerbread with a thatched roof using mini graham crackers. Landscaped plantings are gumdrop circles with fragrant gumdrop leaves atop them. Dragees and sprinkles twinkle on trees and wreaths and give the illusion of real light. All of it is held together with plain white royal icing.  The lighthouse was lots of fun to make and is a whimsical twist on my more traditional annual creations. I can only imagine the happy traveler who is welcomed home by the glow of the keeper's light.
