Last Night on Earth Zombie Gingerbread House

Each year my work does a gingerbread house building contest between the departments. It took a little convincing but I got my team to build a Zombie themed house. Some of the girls were a little turned off at first, but once they saw how awesome this was looking, they started to contribute. The judging is on Monday and I think the odds are in our favor. Thanks, Flying Frog, for making such kick-ass sculpts. We couldn't have done it without you.

The church is made with gingerbread and covered with Toasted Marshmallow Jelly Bellies with cellophane & markers for the windows. 
The steeple is graham cracker and the dark brown roof is Nutella.
The Bell is a Reeces Bell.
Cross is pretzel.
Roof shingles are Maple and Brown Sugar Life Cereal.
The trees are waffle cones covered in that spray on frosting. (You can see the can of it in the first photo.)
The wall around the cemetery is made of painstakingly stacked cut up Tootsie Rolls. 
The church benches, the logs, and weeds are made with pieces of cinnamon sticks.
The crypt is also graham cracker. 
Church doors are just carved dark Hershey's chocolate. 
Cocoa powder for dirt/mud.
Licorice whips for the cemetery gate.
Chocolate/gingerbread tombstones.
And then we used a shload of white frosting.

As a side note, apart from the obvious figures and a few toothpicks and hotglue, this sucker is completely edible. Just pour on some milk and you've got yourself a delicious treat.

May EVERY Christmas be filled with Zombie goodness!
