Assembling Your Edible Estate: Stick 'Em Up!

Hello again, future gingerbread landlords! Now that your construction materials are ready, it's time to erect that candy-coated palace.

Piping the Icing

Royal icing is your mortar; it's the glue that holds your dreams together. Fill a piping bag with icing and test it on a piece of parchment paper first. It should be neither too runny nor too thick. Think toothpaste consistency.


Start with the walls, and pipe icing on the edges to be joined. Hold the pieces together for about a minute to make sure they stick. Once your walls are up, it's time for the roof. Attach it in the same manner—precision is key!

Pro Tip

If your walls feel like they’re leaning like the Tower of Pisa, use cans or jars to support them while the icing hardens.
