Photo by Will Dickie. The Gingerbread House between the tiger’s paws is one of the best styles and sizes of gingerbread houses that The Gingerbread Lady makes. This house is called the Chalet and can be made with or without a chimney. Each house is cut out by hand, baked and put together with a commercially prepared Royal Icing mix which eliminates the problems associated with raw egg products. Each house is decorated differenty; everyone gets his own masterpiece. The Chalet fits on a 9″ round foil wrapped cake board. Weight varies due to the diffeences in candy and icing applications, but most weigh approximately 1 to 2 pounds. Tiger sold separately.
