OUR AWARD WINNING NORTH POLE MARSHMALLOW-GINGERBREAD CABIN
December 21, 2011

I’ve never done a gingerbread house before, let alone one made out marshmallows bit always wanted to.

When I learned that Candy.com and MyCandyCrafts.com were having a contest and the winner would get a $75 gift certificate to either site I knew I had to enter and win.

So I grabbed my notepad and began to sketch out what I thought would be a magical marshmallow gingerbread house.

At the end, I had a North Pole Marshmallow Cabin.

In addition to marshmallows, I used:

  • Royal Icing
  • Pretzels
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Red and Green Sanding Sugar
  • White Sugar Crystals
  • White and Green Sixlets
  • Yellow Candy Stars
  • Various sprinkles and edible decorations
  • Wilton Pre-Structured Gingerbread House Kit (Since I’m not a baker, this was a must LOL)

   

The cabin features:

A fence made out of pretzels and decorated with tree sprinkles.

A crushed candy cane sprinkles walk way which is lined with standing up marshmallow candy canes and green sixlets.

   

A big decorative wreath made from a pretzel and royal icing.

A welcoming snowman holding a gingerbread cookie and a little pine tree.

   

Two decorated and lit up Christmas trees topped with a bright yellow star.

 A mini gingerbread boy and girl.

 A sleigh full of presents.

   

I thought it’d be fun to show the actual dimensions of the cabin using a ruler.

I truly had a blast making it and seeing my marshmallows all come together into an actual self-standing structure.

And……….

I WON!!!

I hope you enjoyed our North Pole Marshmallow-Gingerbread Cabin!
