Easy fix to hold walls together
by: Anonymous

I bought a package, and twice tried to make the icing to hold the silly thing together with no luck. Tried candy cane melting in the microwave, but it set up too fast.
My solution...I received a pacage of 'buttter mints' (the light pastel thin flat round mints). Threw one in the micro at 25 seconds and bam!! Quick swipe of the knife and it was the perfect amount for each joint. Saved our christmas group project...and the mints made great decorations also!
