We finally completed our 2017 Trolls gingerbread house. And BONUS: we were able to break out the leftover Halloween candy to add to the stash that came with the gingerbread kit.
I used my trusty glue gun to assemble the house a couple of days ago, so tonight all I had to do was spread the icing along the house and let the kids place the candies where they wanted to. They were very excited and up for the task!
Soon after starting, my daughter asked if she could taste one of the candies and of course, once I said yes, she began a routine of 1. place a couple candies on the house….then 2. place a couple pieces in my (her) mouth! My son quickly followed suit. I eventually stopped them because I didn’t want them getting all sugared up before bedtime, but I did let them enjoy a few pieces because after all, we only do this once a year and we’re #makingmemories!
It turned out really cute! My daughter said her favorite part was placing Princess Poppy at the door of the gingerbread house.
My son said his favorite part was eating the candies!
My plan is to let the icing dry overnight, then place it on a large glass cake plate on the kitchen island to display it for the rest of the Christmas season.
