Stuff in progress

I have a project in mind using fruit rollups but I need two full 12x12 sheets so I had to make my own.  This first batch came out too thin to cut for my project (but not to thin to enjoy eating :)  So I have another batch going.  But this is how homemade rollups look.
Sorry about all the pictures coming up first.  I still am trying to figure this blog stuff out.  
Anywho:   The picture after the fruit rollup shows the gingerbread rolled out on the cake mat.  I used the box mix and followed the directions for cut out cookies (it works like a charm), after rolling out the dough I placed in the freezer for 10 minutes and then cut.  Once all the excess was removed, I left the cuts on the mat and placed back in the freezer for 5 minutes, I used a large metal spatula coated with flour to remove the cuts with ease.

Baked according to directions on the box.  I used some royal icing to assemble.  You have to get creative here and use what is handy to hold together while the icing hardens.  I used a combination of pill bottles and little boxes of rasins.

The last picture is of my edible glass that I will use on the crown for some major bling effect. 

Hopefully if life does not get in the way again today, I will have these finished tonight and be able to post completed photos.  And answer any questions if you have them.
