Making an Easter Peep Graham Cracker House
The kids thought is was fun to see their names and then be able to eat the place markers.

ROYAL ICING RECIPE
- 3 egg whites (or 1/4 cup meringue powder combined with 1/2 cup of cold water in place of the egg whites) I prefer meringue powder instead of the egg whites and so do not need the cream of tartar.
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 4 cups (1 pound) unsifted confectioners sugar
food coloring, if desired
In a large bowl, whip the egg whites with the cream of tartar until foamy.
Sprinkle in the sugar gradually, whipping all the while. The more you whip the icing, the stiffer it will be and the faster it will harden up.
Cover the bowl of icing, taking out only as much as you’ll need immediately. The easiest way to store the icing for long periods of time is in a plastic pastry bag, or zip-top food storage bag.

How adorable!! You are so talented. Everything looks beautiful and I know it was a good time for all. The kids are so,so cute!
PLEASE have your hubby get the shingles vaccine! My daughter has them and they are horrid and so extremely painful. It's like having all the nerves exposed and she can't stand anything to touch her when she has a breakout. Have you had the vaccine?

What a charming little peep houses! They truly are just so adorable!
Hi, I loved seeing your Easter brunch table as well as the Peep Gingerbread Houses. So very fun. Your table and dishes were beautiful. How many did you have in all-we had 17 total and it was a ball. You mentioned on Debbie's blog whether your hubby should get a Shingles shot-I'm here to stay that I had shingles when I was 42 and it was horrid. I'd much rather get a shot than have it. In fact, I need hubby to get one. Your man won't be sorry!
Grands and family make the world such a blessed place.Thanks for stopping by my place today.

As much as I know I should, I would be reluctant to share my Peep house, too. So cute and so are your grandchildren. Have a beautiful spring day!
