THE BLUE­PRINT FOR SWEET SUC­CESS

Bak­ing your own gin­ger­bread base is the clas­sic way to be­gin, but it can be time-con­sum­ing. Make it eas­ier by start­ing with a kit, like the A-frame ver­sion we used here.

Let it snow! Blan­ket the sur­face around your gin­ger­bread house with shred­ded co­conut. Add a sweet snow­man out­side us­ing marsh­mal­lows dec­o­rated with tinted royal ic­ing.

Search your pantry for build­ing ma­te­rial in­spi­ra­tion. Grab a bag of pret­zels or a box of ce­real, or raid your se­cret candy stash. Get cre­ative adding fun de­tails to your ed­i­ble ed­i­fice.
