Gallery: DIY: How to Build an African-Themed Gingerbread Geodesic Dome



Now you're ready to make your Gingerbread Geodesic Dome look like it was built in Africa! We added chocolate sprinkles to the roof so that they would resemble traditional thatched housing and added sprinkles to the remaining icing so that our land would appear rocky and dry - like it is in parts of Africa. We lucked out by finding a bag of little wooden zebras, lions, and buck, without which no African landscape is complete, and then added herbs from our garden and other greenery that resemble the iconic Acacia tree. Although we cheated a bit by adding a few non-edibles, but we hope you love it all the same!
