Holiday Food DIY’s

The holiday season is a time for creativity and fun! (at least in my opinion) That means Food DIYS!

First, gingerbread houses. I have some tips for making the perfect gingerbread house.

1. For holding the walls together use royal icing or Wilton’s Candy Melts for the best hold

2. Use candies for regular decoration, but also use them for “snowscapes” to decorate the lawn and such

3. Use confectioner’s sugar for snow

4. Keep gingerbread/graham crackers away from moisture or it will soften (i.e. your kettle, oven, etc)

Now for the DIY sweets!

First up, reindeer donuts (she also made snowmen donuts)
