I am wicked into the following method for icing gingerbread house windows because it creates an embedded stained glass windowpane effect.
This technique is an example of the classic royal icing edge & flood method.
Use round cutters, a ruler, and a sharp pointed sculpting impliment to etch guidelines in the windows for a stained glass effect.
Prepare a small amount of denser chocolate-colored royal icing to edge.
And a larger amount of loose colored icings to flood.
Use a toothpick to spread the flood icing into corners/dry spots.
Let the windows dry for a few days before handling them again.
Once all the wall pieces are also decorated and dried, attach the window pieces to the wall backsides. Allow those panels to dry another day or two before assembling the house parts.
That’s how it works!
