Pretzel Gingerbread House
To hold everything together, you will need to make some icing that dries rock hard. I used to make it with egg whites and cream of tartar like my mother taught me, but now I just use Wilton Meringue Powder mixed with powdered sugar and water. You can find Meringue powder in craft stores—follow the recipe for Royal Icing included inside the can.
The roof is made of graham cracker pieces. I added gingerbread cookies to the roof for a nice German look.
