You will need:
Rimmed baking sheet, optional, for easy cleanup
**Adult supervision required. Read directions all the way through before beginning; iced pieces need time to dry before building castle.
Adults Carefully remove cookie pieces from packaging and lay out on flat surface with embossed sides of cookies facing up. Knead icing pouch for 30 seconds until smooth, cut 1/2 inch off one corner, and empty 2/3 into a small mixing bowl. NOTE: This will be used to decorate the castle; reserve the rest of the icing to use when building later. Add 1 tsp. water to the bowl and whisk well to thin icing just slightly. Stand piping bag in a glass and pull over edges to hold open. Transfer thinned icing into piping bag. Twist top to close and set aside. HINT: Use a rubber band to help hold the top of the piping bag closed.
ICE & DECORATE
Kids Empty sugar and candies into small bowls. Place a cookie on a rimmed baking sheet.
Adults Cut a small tip off the piping bag. HINT: Start small, you can always make it larger.
Kids Fill in embossed areas of the cookie by applying gentle pressure and piping a thin layer of icing onto cookie. Use tip of the piping bag to help push icing over areas as desired. Refer to box for inspiration. A toothpick may be helpful to push icing into small corners. HINT: Do not apply icing too thick. Thinly spread icing dries faster. Immediately sprinkle sugar as desired. Turn cookie upside down and gently tap over rimmed baking pan to remove any sugar that fell on an undecorated part of the cookie. Place candies onto wet icing. ADULT HINT: Kitchen scissors can be used to cut gumdrops if desired. Repeat to decorate remaining cookies.
Adult Place decorated cookies in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes to allow icing to set. Make sure all decorated cookies have dried firm to the touch before assembling the castle.
Adults Using reserved pouched icing, squeeze icing into all 4 corners of the base. Pipe a thin line on the side edges of the front castle piece. Place it into the corresponding channel. HINT: The longest channel is for the paper piece. Insert a side cookie piece into position and gently press pieces together. Repeat with the last wall. Be mindful of the iced decorations on the castle pieces. Insert the paper backing piece into the back slot of the base and use dabs of icing as needed to adhere to the side walls.
Kids Insert the character pieces into the slots in the paper stands and arrange them around the castle. Turn LED lights on and off by carefully flipping the light switch on the back panel.* Admire and enjoy!
