This mega house is bigger in size, and better because it is made of chocolate cookies! Kit includes lots of icing, lots of candy and a brightly colored printed board to make finishing the house a fun and festive scene. This year, celebrate Christmas by hosting a chocolate cookie house decorating party for family, friends and chocolate lovers!
Attach board. Before decorating, position the printed board around the house so it fits without any gaps. Secure the board with dots of icing if necessary.
Make front door. Use white icing to outline and fill in door. Pat smooth. Use green icing to outline door. Attach candy for doorknob, door window and above door.
Make all windows. Roll out candy, cut squares for windows and attach to house. Use white icing to outline windows, pipe in curtains and pipe icicles underneath windows.
Decorate house front. Attach candy to front of house under eaves and below windows.
Outline house. Use icing to pipe zigzags at corners of house and lines under eaves.
Decorate roof. Use spatula and white icing to ice roof smooth. Use green icing to pipe six horizontal rows of scallops across each roof panel. Use white icing to pipe icicles at each garland point. Attach candy above scallops. Use green icing to pipe zigzags on roof peak and attach candy. Use white icing to attach candy along front eaves.
Easy-to-complete technique combines using a bag and tip to pipe icing dots and then using the blade of a spatula to pull out one edge. This technique can cover small and large areas with stunning results.
The drop string is traditionally used as decoration on the sides of the cake and is the basis of more ornate string work. Called a "drop" string because the line of piped icing is allowed to "drop" or fall, by itself, before reattaching it to your cake. Pipe a row of single strings or multiple strings in rows of two or three.
