I partnered with Domino® Sugar to create a gingerbread replica of my house and family! Using Domino® Sugar’s Dark Brown Sugar in my gingerbread cookies gives them a rich flavor and keeps them nice and soft. Want to have your very own gingerbread version of your house and family made by me? Follow the instructions to enter Domino® Sugar’s Home Sweet Home contest!
Take a family photo in front of your house with a Domino Brown Sugar product.
Medium and stiff consistency royal icing for the details
12” decorating bags
Decorating tip numbers 1, 2, and 3
Scriber needle or toothpick
Rainbow nonpareils (optional)
Concentrated food coloring
Round brush and fine tip brush
Paint palette or small dish
Alcohol or flavored extract for painting with food coloring (Alcohol or flavored extracts are used for painting on royal icing because they evaporate very quickly, which means that the liquid won’t dissolve the icing as you are applying the paint. The stronger the alcohol, the better!)
To make your own gingerbread house, print out a photo of your home and use it as a template to cut the cookie dough.
