This was a very easy recipe (very basic ingredients) to put together and follow. I cut out the cardboard pieces using approx. the same dimensions (made the pitch of the roof more steep though) Once the dough was rolled out, just placed my 'templates' on the dough, traced and cut. I rolled all the dough out on separate parchment paper which made it easy to transfer to the baking sheet without 'skewing' the 'walls'. I cut out windows, before baking and added crushed candy cane which melted into our 'window glass'. I let the pieces harden overnight before starting assembly. Instead of using the icing recipe here, I used two tubs of ready-made chocolate icing and added 1 16 oz package of confectioners sugar which made a very stiff 'glue'. I assembled the walls as directed, then covered them in the icing, I 'lined' the walls to make it look like logs. I then added the roof. I used Hersheys Cookies n Creme bars to make 'shutters', Kit Kat for the front door, I halved Reeses Peanut Butter cups to make 'flower boxes, Snickers sliced in thin pieces for a 'rock' foundation, and Chocolate Frosted Mini Wheats for the roof 'shingles'. Super fun project! Great recipe, husband and kids loved the flavor of this recipe!
