Pre-Baked Gingerbread House Kit gets you started on building this house for Holiday Worship. From the ice cream cone steeple to the jellied candy ?stained glass? windows, this is sure to draw the faithful.
Assemble house according to package directions. Center house on base and attach with royal icing.
To make church steeple, trim open end of cone with knife to fit on church peak. Ice cone smooth with royal icing that has been thinned down with water. Let dry overnight.

I have realized that it is easier to putt together the walls if the edges of all the walls and roof are scraped with the spatula. When using the icing, the consistency is described as thicker than white glue so it does not leak while putting it together.
