Thanks for a great web site! Our G.S. troop makes a 3' high gingerbread house for the PPG Wintergarden in Pittsburgh. The Gingerbread Library and Community center are on The Ruff Writers web site.

Edible Snow
by: Anonymous

Try making white royal icing and spread it out on a sheet pan. When it dries (overnight) take the blade of a serated knife and draw it across the royal icing. It will flake, creating beautiful snow. Then mix in some clear edible glitter. You'll love the effect.

For great realistic looking snow pulse some flaked coconut with some edible white glitter (found in craft stores or cake supply stores Wilton brand). Sprinkle it all around and voila! hope this helps you!

Some other gingerbread house snow ideas
by: Kelly

Royal icing definitely works. Here are some other edible snow ideas:

- Any kind of white frosting
- Coconut (sprinkled on top of icing)
- Sugar or clear sprinkles on icing (for an icy effect)
- Cotton Candy (this works best for smoke from chimneys, but can also be used for snow)
- Gum paste and/or fondant make terrific snowy gingerbread house landscapes and dry harder than most of the other suggestions here. Gum paste is especially great for building snowmen or adding snow to other fondant or gum paste figures.
- Marshmallow fluff. A little sticky but it can work
- Powdered sugar (best for the tops of gingerbread houses (for a light sprinkling of snow effect) but not as great for gingerbread landscaping.

Snow landscaping

Making gingerbread house snow is usually done with royal icing (the same icing used to glue the gingerbread pieces together.)
