  • You Will Need
    4 TBSP. room temperature butter
    1 cup powdered sugar
    1 TBSP. milk

    (Adult Supervision Required)

    Kids Be sure to wash hands. Cooking can be messy work. You might want to wear a smock or apron. Knead icing pouch for 1 minute to a soft, smooth consistency. Remove candies from pouches and set aside for decorating.
    Adults Carefully remove cookie pieces from packaging and break apart panels along deep score marks. Lay out on countertop with rough sides of cookies facing up. HINT: Always decorate cookies on the smooth side and assemble on the rough side. Refer to diagram to help identify all pieces to be used in assembly. To start the flow of icing, snip the tip of the icing pouch to a 1/4-inch opening. Be careful not to cut the opening too large. NOTE: The white icing is used to build the train but you will have extra to add decorative accents later.

    Adults Pipe a line of icing in the channels of the engine portion of the train base. 
    Pipe a strip of icing along both long edges of piece C and stand in the channel at the rear of the engine portion of the base. Press pieces A and B into the side channels and press gently against C to adhere. Pipe a strip of icing along the edge of the back of piece E and press gently into position on the front of the engine. Let engine set for 3 minutes. Pipe a strip of icing on the top of pieces A and B and press pieces D and F into position as shown. Finish your engine by squeezing a strip of icing along the back of piece I and pressing into place. Wheel pieces G and H can be adhered to the side of the engine with a small dollop of icing. Pipe a line of icing in the channels of the caboose portion of the train base. Squeeze icing next to the edge on the short sides of pieces J and K. Press J, L, and M into the channels and position piece K into place to finish the caboose. Allow engine and caboose to set for 10 minutes before decorating.

    Adults Drape a piping bag over edges of a glass to make filling easier and fill with the balance of the white icing. Cut a small tip off the bag and twist top to close. Set aside while you prepare the red frosting. Place room temperature butter in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat on HIGH until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add frosting mix and powdered sugar; beat on LOW until combined. Add milk and beat on HIGH until creamy. Use a spatula to fill the second piping bag with frosting in the same manner as before. Cut a small tip of the bag, twist the top of the piping bag to close, and gently squeeze frosting to the tip. HINT: Do not cut the tip too large; a small tip works best for fine details. 
    Kids Decorate train with frosting and candies, using small dabs of frosting and remaining white icing to hold candies and paper décor pieces in place. HINT: Gumdrops can be rolled flat and cut into decorative strips and shapes. ADULT HINT: Starlight wheels can be cut using a gentle sawing motion with a sharp knife. Refer to box for inspiration. Insert character paper pieces into their paper stands and place around train as desired. Allow train to dry completely before carefully moving, if necessary. Admire and enjoy!
