Each house was a replica of famous buildings like the Arizona Gammage
The Guggenheim Art Museum
A replica of the historic state capitol building in Prescott.
My favorite was this one, a traditional Gingerbread House.
Here's another house that was on display. It's different...I like the water effect.
Back to our Gingerbread House project ....the Gingerbread House has become a tradition that my son, aka Uncle Daniel, does with Adriel's kids every year.
Eggless Royal Icing recipe from Food.com. Did you know this is what Gingerbread icing is called? I sure didn't. This eggless recipe is great because if you eat the candy off of the house, you don't have to worry about getting salmonella from the eggs. I thought I'd share the recipe here, just in case anyone out there decides to make a Gingerbread House with Royal Icing.
Eggless Royal Icing
Ingredients:1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 teaspoons water or milk
3 teaspoons light corn syrup
- In a small bowl, stir together confectioner's sugar and water or milk until smooth.
- Add corn syrup until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more corn syrup.
- Keep icing covered with damp cloth when not using to prevent crusting
