Wilton's 3-D Cake Kit from Michal's
Prepare and roll out dough following recipe directions. Use cutters from set to cut two shapes of each cutter size. Bake and cool cookies.
Prepare *royal icing following mix package directions. Tint a large portion green; reserve some white. Cut approximately ¼ in. off tops of spice drops. Cut ½ in. off rounded top of large gum drop. Place cut sides down on parchment paper-covered cookie sheet.
*Royal icing takes at least 8 hours to set, so you will want to start your project at least one day in advance of serving.
Use tip 16, a cut disposable decorating bag and white icing to pipe swirl on top of candy. Let set, about 45 to 60 minutes.
Use round tip from set, a cut disposable decorating bag and green icing to assemble tree on foil-wrapped cake circle according to kit instructions.
Use round tip from set, a cut disposable decorating bag and green icing to pipe zigzags on each cookie tip, working with one whole side of tree at a time.
Immediately attach confetti sprinkles, icing decorations, mini jawbreakers and small cupcake decorations.
|Repeat decorating all sides of the tree. Use icing to attach large gum drop to top of tree. Let set overnight.|
Gingerbread House Preservation Tips:
- Let your gingerbread house dry in a warm room for 24 hours.
- Place the dry house in a well-ventilated room and spray well with varnish.
- Warning: A brush might knock off candy.
- Make sure to cover the house completely with varnish – inside door frames and windows included. Spray the inside first, and then circle the outside.
