|We made gingerbread (graham cracker) houses Sunday night with the grandkids.|
Frosting : 6 egg whites, 1/2 tsp. cream of tarter, and 2 lbs. of powdered sugar.
Mix it all until smooth. (I used the mixer but don't "whip" it.)
The frosting went into a freezer qt. size bag, and the corner was snipped off.
|Every seam gets frosting inside and out.|
The more it "drips" the better...it looks like snow.
|Gracie insisted her house be a triangle.|
|We thought it came out rather Frank Lloyd Wright-ish. :-)|
There is a lot of helping the kids yet with the placing of the crackers......
|....but they love placing the candy.|
|We only had one cave in.....|
|......but it all came out all right.|
We buy all the candy at the dollar store...and save left overs from year to year.
|They had a great time. |
This was our 2nd Annual Making of the Gingerbread Houses,
we expect the houses to get better every year. :-)
