Recipe for fun...
Ingredients: Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cookie Mix ~in the pouch~ is a great cookie mix. I add a little extra cinnamon and spices for an extra kick.
3 tbsp. Meringue Powder
4 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
6 tbsp. water Beat all ingredients at low speed for 7-10 minutes or until icing forms peaks.
*You can also purchase royal icing mixes at specialty kitchen and party stores and just add water.
*I also use Candy Melts to construct my houses. It works great! Sometimes you may find a few cracks when it drys; just coat back over it.
Candy, fondant, gumpaste and sprinkles, are the other items I like to decorate with.
