Three Little Pigs Gingerbread

3 Little Pigs Gingerbread Houses

I made these Three Little Pigs gingerbread houses with my co-worker Angie and her 2.5 year old daughter. It was so much fun and I was impressed with how involved her daughter was with our project. Of course she was excited by the candy but she also enjoyed making the houses. She attached the windows, put all of the legs on the pigs, and assisted with other decorations. The theme was her idea since she loved the Three Little Pigs houses that we saw at the Eastman House Sweet Creations exhibit.

Gingerbread Recipe: I used this recipe.

Royal Icing Recipe: I love using this recipe which uses Meringue Powder. It hardens fast and works very well.

Brick House: Bricks – Twizzlers Cherry Nibs, Door – Hershey Miniature, Roof – Andes Candies, Windows – Pretzel Snaps

Stick House: Sticks – pretzel sticks, Door – Hershey Miniature, Windows – pretzel snaps

Straw House: Shredded Wheat (crumbled and whole)

Pigs: Large marshmallows – dyed pink, nose – small marshmallows dyed pink and pink royal icing details, ears – pink royal icing, eyes – melted chocolate, legs – pretzel sticks. Inspired by this.

Wolf: Large marshmallow – dipped in melted chocolate chips, ears – marshmallows dipped in melted chocolate chips, eyes – white royal icing, legs – mini chocolate dipped marshmallows. Inspired by this.

Path: Life cereal with red and green M&M’s

Bushes: Gumdrops

Tree: Ice cream cone covered with Royal Icing and gum drops
