Additional Information

Step 1

Ice the roof of gingerbread house, one panel at a time.

Step 2

Immediately after icing, sprinkle White Sparkling Sugar all over the iced surface until the entire panel is covered.

Step 3

If needed, very lightly press the sugars onto the icing to make sure that it sticks to the surface.

Step 4


  • Work one panel at a time. Once icing begins to set, it becomes less tacky making it difficult for sugars to adhere.
  • Experiment with other colors of sparkling sugar for a unique look.
  • This technique will also work for covering the roof surface with sprinkles.
