Even though it's not completely a gingerbread house, I thought it should have some gingerbread cookie parts. I struggled with the puff paint icing (I'm not much of a cake decorator) but after scraping and cleaning it off each piece 4 or 5 times I decided this is about the best I can do. I hope it gives the right effect; just don't look too closely.

Wow, it looks stunning with the cookie pieces added. I love seeing a gingerbread house that's not all bright and christmasy. :)

Thanks. That's what I was struggling with. The solution turned out to be the same as when any other house looks too new, bright, or unrealistic. Darken and mute the colors, blur the edges, and make it blotchy. Then I'm happy :)
