We are having a holiday party this weekend, and were thinking it would be nostalgic and fun to set people up (in teams, no less - we can get pretty competitive!!) with ingredients for gingerbread house making.
We don't have time to make real gingerbread - will graham crackers work for the walls and roof? And then what to use for icing? I know it's basically just sugar and water so I am not averse to making it myself if there is a good recipe that will give us a nice, stiff "glue." Otherwise, could we use the stuff that comes in a tub (I'm thinking Duncan Hines - it's pretty thick isn't it?) But I don't know if that will harden sufficiently to hold the houses together.
Any other suggestions would be great - we're going to get all sorts of fun candies (spearmint trees, maybe swedish fish for the surrealists in the crowd)...
