EntranceEdit

The house could be entered by a notorious gate that would admit anyone but wouldn't let anyone out. The exception to this is Jacob's magical key. The house is surrounded by a wrought-iron fence with candy stuck to it.

HouseEdit

The sugar-icing roof's tiles were painted bright cherry-red, but as of current they are covered in moss, and paint was peeling off the window frames. Before the abandonment pieces of gingerbread were stuck to the outer walls, but now most of the gingerbread has fell off. Sugary icicles still hang from the gutters and the windowsill, and the house smells of cinnamon and honey.
