Hi, all. I am posting a Google Translation of Yazz's comment, so the English speakers among us can read it:

"My inspiration for this project was my childhood, the toys, the Barbies that I liked so much and I still like them !!! It brings me beautiful memories of my grandparents and Three Kings Day, which here in Mexico is tradition.

I wanted to make the typical gingerbread house with sweets, in pastel colors. Only they are not real sweets, I made them with icing and fondant. I used transfers to make the pretzels, the colored gummies that I will sugar with decorative sugar, the gingerbread children, and the popsicles that are made of icing and gum paste as well. than sweets. the windows are made with isomalt. I used the knitting technique on the ceiling, and in the chocolates as well, I painted them with shades and gel dyes, I wanted to put more things like a Christmas tree but I think the base was tiny and nothing else could fit, everything is edible including the base, I put real grains of salt on the pretzels and painted with gel.

I have loved this challenge with my two houses that I did and I enjoyed it very much, both are very contrasting, one very large and the other very small. It was a challenge for me to do them since I had not done one before and I was very satisfied with the result. I hope you like it, thanks again for organizing these challenges and for this page that is full of wonderful, warm and kind people, I wish you all have a wonderful and new beginning 2021 many congratulations and best wishes to all of you!!!"

Mi inspiración para este proyecto fue mi niñez, los juguetes , las barbies que tanto me gustaban y me gustan aún !!! Me trae bellos recuerdos de mis abuelitos y el día de reyes, que acá en México es tradición  

Quize hacer la típica casita de jengibre con dulces, en colores pastel. Solo que no son dulces reales, yo los hice con icing y fondant, utilice transfer para hacer los pretzel, las gomitas de colores que azucaré con azúcar decorativa, los niños de jengibre, las paletas que están hechas de icing y pasta de goma al igual que los dulces.
las ventanas están hechas con isomalt, utilice la técnica de tejido de punto en el techo, y en los bombones también , los transfer los pinté con matizadores y colorantes en gel, quería ponerle más cosas como un árbol de navidad pero creo que la base fue pequeñita y ya no cabía nada más , todo es comestible incluyendo la base, a los pretzel les puse granos de sal reales y pinté con gel.
Me ha encantado este desafío con mis dos casas que hice lo disfrute muchísimo las dos son muy contrastantes una muy grande y otra muy pequeñita. Fue un reto para mi hacerlas ya que no había hecho una anteriormente y quede muy satisfecha con el resultado.
espero les guste , gracias nuevamente por organizar estos retos y por esta paguina que esta llena de personas maravillosas, cálidas y amables,

les deseo que todas tengan un maravilloso y nuevo comienzo 2021 muchas felicidades y mis mejores deseos a todas !!! 🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷

This is a wonderful gingerbread house. It has all of the classic elements: pastel colors, gingerbread men, and deliciously sweet candy, which you have so expertly recreated with royal icing, fondant and gel colors. I love your knitted roof and they way you have carried this pattern through to other parts of your house. This is such a happy and cheerful entry.
