NO Time for Gingerbread Caramel Cabin

 Love the idea of the gingerbread centerpiece but don't have the time or the patience? Here is an easy alternative.


Needed materials
caramels
cookies or graham crackers
frosting- home made or store bought
sugar cones for ice cream
sprinkles
assorted candies/decorations



HomeTalk generously gave away some party supplies  to throw a party for friends! The package included a beautiful bell choche from Wayfair, perfect for a centerpiece showcasing edible winter bliss!


On a small piece of wax paper- this helps with transport- "glue" with frosting the  unwrapped caramels. Continue to build, cut caramels in half when you get to the roof.

 I used some fig cookies for the roof, you can use grahams or whatever is handy and the right size for your cabin.

 Use green frosting for the trees, sprinkle with snowflakes, glitter or any cake decorations you like







I used a good smathering of frosting to anchor everything in place and topped it with more sprinkles and a small bit of blue sanding sugar.
There you have an easy centerpiece! So easy even the kids can make them!
