A 3D nutcracker is impressive, but a gingerbread 3D nutcracker is truly a work of art. A chocolate cupcake, wrappered in red, with plum colored icing, is atop candy cane striped icing to make a proper shako hat, for the gingerbread nutcracker. Elegant white hair flows from his head, while a thick mustache and beard gush from his chin. Gumdrops are the "Epaulette" for this semi-traditional nutcracker. Aqua and plum colored stockings lead down to his boots, which have the look of supple leather with jelly beans for clasps. The whole nutcracker is standing on a layered, gingerbread styled, base with an icing and candy cane mortar, to contrast the pieces.
