I entered a gingerbread house contest, put on by Summerville Dream. A local booster club. Who knew the humidity would wreck havoc on my creation.
I had high hopes
It was going to be fantastic!
The candies were starting to slide off, and the gingerbread was no longer nice and crisp. It was becoming soft enough that my finger prints would leave indentations.

At this point, I decided to stop. No sense in going on, trying to fight the weather.
Time to think up Plan B
I did try to make bows from fondant, and no. they were too soft to look good.
