Good decorating with royal icing, candy melts, frosted mini wheats, sunflower seed drops, dried blueberries and cranberries, Reese's Pieces, almonds, Red Vines, coconut, and snowflake "sprinkles."
My favorite thing... my new decorating bottles by Kuhn Rikon that the kids can easily use (Sur La Table, Jen, in a big basket near the front door... in case you need some too). Merry Little Christmas to me!
Gingerbread House Glue (AKA Royal Icing/Frosting)
5 Tbs. Meringue powder
1/2 c. warm water
Whip until stiff peaks form, then slowly beat in...
almost 1 lb. of powdered sugar;
until a thick icing frosting forms. Load into bags, frosting bottles or just spread.
