  • Royal Icing:

  • Beat meringue powder, cream of tartar and warm water in large bowl with mixer on high speed until well blended. Gradually add icing sugar, beating on low speed after each addition until well blended. Beat on high speed 5 min. or until stiff peaks form.
  • House:

  • Use small amount of Royal Icing to attach 2 wafers to each other in "V" shape for roof of house. Stand 1 of the remaining wafers on sheet of waxed paper. Attach to 1 of the bottom edges of roof with additional icing for side wall. Repeat for second side wall. Use additional icing to attach remaining wafer to bottoms of walls for the floor. Stand house upright.
  • Spread or pipe icing onto floor inside house; sprinkle with coloured sugar. Stand Teddy Grahams in house, using additional icing if necessary, to secure.
  • Attach candies to peak of roof with icing. Decorate roof with remaining icing. Let stand until icing is set.


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.

    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!
