OK FINE! I finally gave into this hugely popular christmas tradition after all! I knew for sure you don’t get molasses easily at my neighbourhood mall, so I didn’t bother making a gingerbread house, chocolate bars however are available anywhere & everywhere, including my own kitchen.
While I purchased Marzipan (had made it earlier around), I had a lot of leftover icing, food coloring, tiny M&Ms and what not from previous baking projects.
Our Winter Wonderland is 100% edible!
i.e. if you don’t include toothpicks.
...And the straw that held the roof together.
|Stuff I already had - check out the colors!|
|Chocolate at room temperature is easy to cut! We used almond thins for the roof|
|Left over icing served as 'cement'. The almond thins kept falling off nonetheless! I finally shoved it in the fridge praying for a miracle. Found it nicely solidified next morning.|
Readymade Marzipan served as dough for snowmen, presents & wreath. The best part was sifting powdered sugar over the whole project!! We def were running the risk of overdoing it.
|Pin it please!|
