My daughters 1st grade teacher called and asked me for some advice on making their gingerbread houses. To save time they are just using graham crackers and a milk carton for a support. She said in the past they have used canned frosting and that they have not had luck with them staying together. What is your suggestion on a frosting for them to use that is inexpensive, but edible (kids always like to lick their fingers). I thought of the royal icing, but it is for kids and I didn't want it to dry to fast on them. I also thought of using regular buttercream frosting - stiff consistency - What are your thoughts? She needs to have a recipe for Monday.
