Cover icing at all times to prevent hardening. To store several hours or overnight, place plastic wrap directly on surface of icing; refrigerate. Before using, beat with mixer until stiff.
To hang on tree, slip a piece of thin ribbon through house; tie into bow.
Don't have a pastry bag? Use a small resealable bag instead. Cut small piece off one of the bottom corners of bag; seal bag. When ready to assemble house, gently squeeze top of bag to pipe icing.

These were fun to make and they were even better to ea.
Great Idea... I have made small houses using a Kraft recipe 10 years ago but I used melted semi or unsweetened melted chocolate blocks or chips, instead of the royal glaze icing.... just gently melt the chocolate in the micro wave or over low heat in a double boiler. Spoon and scrape melted chocolate into a zippered lock style small snack bag or zippered locking small sandwich bag. Cut a very small bit off of the bottom corner of the bag and the the bag can be used like a piping bag. The little warm hands of Santa's helpers usually will keep the chocolate from firming up and there is less mess than with royal glaze ( the meringue powder and icing sugar mix). If you use unsweetened chocolate, the kids won't eat it up as fast. The sweetness of the cookies and decorations will be enough sugar to offset the unsweetened chocolate.
If you build the house around an empty and washed out 250 ml cardboard milk container, even small children will have no problem with the walls and roof collapsing!
