A Ridiculous Amount of Fun!

We met up last weekend to decorate our gingerbread houses and had a ridiculous amount of fun!
Get your Christmas hair-do on and make some royal icing and get cracking.

You'll also need lots of lollies...
and children, 

Jars and cans provide roof support until the icing sets and sticks.
You can use a piping bag but the kids had a ball with freezer bags filled with icing and just a wee snip at one corner.

Royal Icing
1 cup plus 2 tabs icing sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp cornflour
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp lemon juice

Combine the ingredients well and store in an air tight bowl till ready to use.
NOTE: if you use icing mixture instead of icing sugar you won't need the cornflour as it contains it already.


  1. Looks like a LOT of fun. I can almost hear the giggles. ;o)

  2. I told a certain someone he's now internationally famous for his frosting. :)

  3. I am sure not all the lollies made it onto the gingerbread houses but that is all part of the fun.
