Step 13: Decoration: The Sprayed Shreddies Roof

Now that all the main Gingerbread pieces were on I could start to decorate!  I used Shreddies Cereal as my roof Shingles.  I laid out a large piece of Tin Foil then spread out the Shreddies flat along the entire surface of tin foil. I then used Spray Red Food colouring ( I believe it's often used on cupcakes) To dye my shingles red.  I started gluing them on with icing from the bottom and worked my way up making sure to break the bottom of each shingle just a little bit so it looked older and a bit more aged. 

On the corners of the roof, I put a line of shreddies down to hide the seam.

Once they were all on and dry, I used a bit of black and brown icing and a paint brush to paint in shadows and dirt.

This is the coolest use of shreddies I have ever seen. I am a big fan of the shreddies.
