Our Gingerbread Village

Remember when I posted our village that had been constructed but not decorated?  Well they look a lot different now. 

Kara had a friend sleep over last night and she was able to spend the afternoon with us.  Since there were several buildings, each of the girls had their own to decorate.  I piled all sorts of sugary goodies on the table.  We used the small amount of candy that came in the kit, but added in peppermints, M & Ms, marshmellows, and red hots. 

We also "cheated" with a can of store bought frosting. There was not enough left in the kit for all the white we wanted to add.  I remembered as we were working there was an open can in the fridge from when my teenager took opened a can to eat a spoonful the other night.. Grrr, at least it we were able to put it to good use.  I placed spoonfuls of frosting in baggies and they worked great.

Once decorated, the mini village was placed back on the platter and it "snowed" power sugar.   Quite a colorful difference from the before pic!
