Sweet Flour on Canada AM: Our Best Decorating Tips

Our Prime Time Debut on Canada AM!

Our Prime Time Debut on Canada AM!

It’s gingerbread season in our bakeshop, so Canada AM invited us to help kick off their Canada AM Christmas Master Class series with a great way to make a family memory: building a gingerbread house.

Shop online for one of our Gingerbread Kits, check out our live How-To video here, & then follow our tips below for your best gingerbread house this holiday season!

  • The brighter the better: whip up some icing from gingerbread house kit and then add dashes of food colouring to give your icing a colorful boost
  • Think outside the candy aisle: M&M’s act as triple duty to make a stone chimney, a front pathway or Christmas lights for the outside of the house. Jujubes are a fun way to add in trees, flowers or other landscaping details
  • Go green — candy that is! The classic green & white striped mints are a natural way to spruce up some greenery
  • Make it Canadian: no Gingerbread House is complete without some mini-marshmallow snow piles

Our Gingerbread Kit is just a start — search your cupboards for more inspiration! Pretzels, chocolate chips, dried fruits — so many ways to add in delicious details. 

So, what do you think ?
