Prepare your icing
Adults: Knead icing pouch for 1 minute to a smooth consistency (figure 1). Remove candies from pouches and set aside for decorating. Carefully remove cookie pieces from packaging and lay out on a flat surface with rough sides of cookies facing up. Snip a corner of the icing pouch to a 1/4-inch opening.
Build your castle
Adults: Pipe a line of frosting in the channels of the castle platform (figure 2). Squeeze a thick line of icing next to the edge of the front castle panel (figure 3) and insert into the castle platform. Set side walls into channel (figure 4) and press against icing strips on the front panel. Finish castle by icing back edge of back castle panel, set in channel and press against side walls. Allow to set 5 minutes before applying roof. HINT: If cookies crack during construction, use the icing to join broken pieces and let sit 10 minutes before continuing. Apply a line of icing along the top edges of the castle. Gently attach roof cardboard piece and allow to set for 1 minute.
Kids: Plan your designs while you wait.
Kids: Carefully trace embossed designs on the cookie pieces. Add piped icing swirls and castle details as desired. HINT: Squeeze some icing into a sandwich bag and snip a small corner for fine detailing. Apply candies, steps, and clock piece using dabs of icing, pressing gently to adhere. The castle platform can be decorated as well! Insert the character pieces into the clear plastic bases and arrange them around the castle. Attach the towers to their interlocking bases. Allow castle to dry completely before moving. Enjoy!
