You will need:
1 1/2 tsp. water to thin icing
**Adult supervision required.
Ice (Plan ahead, needs time to set)
Adults Carefully remove cookie pieces from packaging and lay out on a flat surface with smooth sides of cookies facing up. Knead icing pouch for 1 minute to a soft, smooth consistency. Snip the tip of the icing pouch to a 1/4-inch opening. Squeeze half of the icing pouch into a small bowl. This will be used to decorate the house. Set aside the remaining pouched icing to assemble the house later. Add water to the icing in the bowl and stir well to combine. Insert the piping bag into a tall glass and pull over edges to hold open. Use a spatula to pour and scrape icing into piping bag. Twist top to close and cut a small tip. HINTS: Do not cut the tip too large, you can always make it larger later if necessary. Use a small rubber band to help hold the top closed.
Kids Gently squeeze icing to the tip and pipe designs on cookie pieces. Use a knife or spatula to help cover large areas. HINT: Keep in mind that one of the pieces will become the back of the Trolls House and only the top portion will show. Refer to box for inspiration. Save leftover icing to apply candies and gumdrops once the house is built. Set pieces aside and allow to dry at least 30 to 45 minutes. You can place them in the refrigerator to help speed the process. ADULT HINT: Assist kids with icing; only iced surfaces of the cookie can be painted later. Once the icing has fully dried, you can pipe over areas to create textured surfaces. Let those areas dry before painting.
Adults Place a bowl of water and paper towel next to each work area. Remove watercolor palettes and paintbrushes from pouches.
Kids Wet brush and tap to remove excess water. Place tip of brush into part of one color on edible watercolor palette and rub gently to activate color. Paint cookies as desired, rinsing brush between colors. Allow painted areas to dry before assembling house.
Adults Pipe a line of icing in the channels of the house base (Figure 1). Squeeze a thick line of icing on the edge of each of the side wall pieces (Figure 2). Stand the front house piece into the base channel. Insert one of the wall pieces into the corresponding base channel and press against the front piece. Repeat with the other wall (Figure 3). Be mindful of touching the icing on the decorated pieces. Turn the back house piece so that the decorated side faces the interior of the house, place into channel, and press against side walls to secure (Figure 4). Apply a line of icing along the underside edge of the cardboard roof. Gently attach roof piece and allow house to set for 15 minutes before decorating with candies.
Kids Empty candies and gumdrops into small bowls. Apply to house using dabs of icing, pressing gently to adhere. ADULT HINT: Use kitchen scissors to cut gumdrops if desired. Squeeze a bit of icing on the base and press the grassy area next to the front door. Insert the character pieces into the clear plastic stands and arrange them around the house. Admire and enjoy!
