I am making a grandfather clock out of gingerbread for a competition and i have about two weeks left to get it done. I planned to put lights in it but i am afraid it will melt my sugar. I also have a fondant clock face. Any suggestions on lights that wont melt my piece or should i just veto the idea completely. Also every time i go to pour the sugar windows it breaks my gingerbread and the sugar usually breaks as well. I have made the piece five times and only twice i have even gotten it to the sugar windows stage without having to start over.... Im not going to give up but i have no ideas left on what to do.... I need help any and all advice is much appreciated.
