Decorating Your Lighthouse

Click through the photos to see how we decorated our lighthouse, but go to town doing it your way! The point is not to make it perfect, but to be creative–and to leave some candy for the house.

Decorate the Cottage

To decorate keeper's cottage: Pipe or spread icing with a spatula on roof of house and layer flat candies for shingles, or use spatula to spread icing. Pipe lighthouse and cottage with additional frosting and decorate as desired. Top with icing "snow," if desired. Sprinkle with powdered sugar for a recently snowed effect, but remember it will not last long as humidity will melt the powdered sugar eventually.

  • Roof of cottage: Necco chocolate wafers
  • Posts along edges: Chocolate Hazelnut Pepperidge Farm Creme Filled Pirouette Rolled Wafers
