i've still not gotten eden's santa picture scanned, BUT...
i keep forgetting to show you guys my candy cottage! this was the HIT of the junior league shopping spree this year... and i ventured to do my first one... no help, no real "blue print"
so, the candy cottage is a plastic "house" and "yard" that LOOK like gingerbread, and all you have to do is use a container of frosting and stick any sort of candy on there! they advertise them for ALL occasions... i saw some really cute halloween houses, and even some spring-y ones...
then when you're done, warm water washes everything away! and you're gingerbread house is ready to be decorated for the next occasion!
i wouldn't say this was my BEST work, but i had a lot of fun doing it and just "learning" how to use, spread, portion the icing... i'm looking forward to doing one for most of the holidays around here!
i used starlight mints, twizzlers, and the christmas m&ms... and kit kat "bricks" for the side of the house!
next time, i may try piping the icing instead of a massive spread... lots of fun & a GREAT gift idea!!!
