To Make A Candy House

House for a show window. Take any design you

fancy, of card board. Cut out the windows; place this on your candy

slab. Now with a lead pencil mark out your design, and as many of each

piece as you need (it is a good idea to make an extra piece so if you

break one you can go ahead). Now take of the icing sugar and fill your

paper funnel as if for cake icing, and overline the pencil marks you

made on the stone. When done you find you have a frame that will hold

hot candy. Boil a batch of Barley Square goods (mentioned in this

book), and pour on some in a dipper; take this and pour in your icing

sugar frame or patterns you made on the stone, when half cold, so as

not to run; run a thin knife under them carefully, lift them and lay

them in a different place on the stone; when you have moulded all cut

off the icing sugar that sticks to the candy. Then put your candy house

together, sides first, and take pieces of lemon stick candy, dip them

in the hot candy, and stick in the bottom and top corners of your

house; hold them a few seconds to cool, then finish likewise. When

done, take your icing sugar and funnel paper and on the outside corners

of the candy house put icing sugar and the windows finish the same.

Candies, if desired, can be stuck on with the icing sugar, etc. The

icing sugar should be stiff for a nice job, and will hide the corners.

Candy pyramids can be made this way also.
