FLUFFY WINTER WONDERLAND

Marshmallow Winter Wonderland_TheMarshmallowStudio

If you’ve been following me since 2010 you know that I love gingerbread houses. I have made a marshmallow gingerbread house every year and I still have them on display in my Studio too!

To me they are magical, versatile and super fun. Decorating them with marshmallows and royal icing just come natural to me hahaha Adding little edible embellishments and characters truly brings it to life!

I’m super excited to share with you my latest project I made for KRAFT Jet-Puffed Marshmallows. I know I say this all the time and it’s totally bias but I absolutely loved how it turned out….

Here are the details:

There was a gingerbread mommy and a gingerbread daddy.

I used Jet-Puffed‘s Gingerbread Mallows then decorated them with Wilton edible ink pens, royal icing, a flower sprinkle and disco dust.

Inside the house was a  little baby gingerbread girl.

There was Mr. Snowman too! I used a Jet-Puffed‘s Snowman Mallow then decorated him with Wilton edible ink pens, royal icing and a variety of sprinkles and non perils.

I initially wanted to bake a real gingerbread house but let’s be real… I had NO time. So plan B ended up me using a paper mache two piece house that I had purchased a while ago from Hobby Lobby. I was supposed to paint it like a train station for my boys to play with it. Now I owe them one.

Now, let’s talk about the inside first:

Before attaching the roof on top of the house, I decided to decorate the interior as well. I made two different marshmallow Christmas trees then cut out a rug, wallpaper and curtains out of scrapbook paper. I attached everything in place with royal icing.

I used Jet-Puffed‘s S’mores Mallows coated in green sugar to make the trees. One was decorated with sugar pearls and the other with sprinkle candy canes and snowflakes.

It was fun trying to capture it with my camera. I hope one day I can be a better photographer…. hahaha if I ever get around to buying new cool lenses! (that’s another long story)

…… and onto the exterior we go:

I attached two pre-made royal icing wreaths I had and just added a little sparkle to them with pink disco dust.

The doorway was dazzled with these amazing sugar pearls I purchased at Cake Camp. Aren’t they freakin’ awesome? I have them in gold too. Wish I would have bought some of every color.

I made sure to add silver sparkle to the snow on the windows too!

The roof was covered with royal icing first then lots of tiny Jet-Puffed‘s Mallow Bits.  It really looked like snow :)

The walkway was also covered in icing and disco dust with a border of Mallow Bits.

I attached pink and white twine all around the board.

This fluffy winter wonderland wouldn’t be complete without big green foresty tress surrounding the gingerbread house so I added three.

Each tree was made using a different coloring technique, different marshmallows and different decorating styles.

For all three trees I used Styrofoam cones as my base.

For the tallest tree that sits behind the house, I used Jet-Puffed‘s Ice Cream Cone Mallows coated in lime green sugar. I piped “snow” on some branches and attached a few pre-made sugar snowflakes.

For the second tallest  tree I used Jet-Puffed‘s Large Marshmallows. I cut them and sprayed them with the new and amazing AmeriColor‘s green food color spray.

I sprinkled silver disco dust all over it’s branches and attached a few silver dragees. This was my favorite tree.

For the shortest and cutest tree, I used the trees from the Jet-Puffed‘s Holiday Mallows and then a star for the topper.

I decorated it with pink dragees, pink dusco dust and Wilton‘s silver star accents.

Just as I was finishing up the photos on this cold Winter and cloudy morning…. The sun decided to make an appearance. The beautiful sun rays made the house look so magical. I couldn’t resist taking a few extra shots.

It reminded me of those time when we go up to the mountains and the sun light makes it through the tall pines to warm our faces and make the snow shimmer. I love it!
