Order a gingerbread house mold. I ordered this one from amazon for $17.
Make the glass!
- In a large pot dissolve 4 cups of white granulated sugar with 2 cups of water and 1 cup of light Karo syrup. Stir while dissolving.
- Once dissolved, turn the heat to medium and stop stirring! Use a wet brush to gently brush any sugar from the sides into the mixture.
- Boil the sugar mixture until the temperature reaches between 300-310 degrees. Add two drops of food coloring and stir with a wooden stick.
- Each batch makes one house and a couple of extra small pieces.
Pour into the molds. Once the mixture has cooled just slightly, pour the mixture into the molds and let cool for one hour.
Make frosting. Here is the frosting recipe we used:
Start decorating! We bought battery-operated tea lights to make the houses glow at night.
I hope you enjoy making these gingerglass houses! ~Jess
