There's no need to have a plain gingerbread house roof if you have a spatula on hand. Many different textures can be created by using a spatula to make a look of fallen snow, shingles and stucco.

Icicles capture the magical moment of snow falling and gracefully trailing down a winter cottage. Add this magical look effect to roof edges, windowsills and trees.

An architectural flair and welcoming appeal can be achieved by adding artistic windowpanes to a gingerbread house. Beautiful small paned windows, front bay windows and even cathedral windows can be made in a few easy steps.
