The base is an 18 in. x 18in. drawing board, wrapped in parchment paper. Cocoa Pebbles Krispy treats formed the land.
trees were made from ice cream cones covered with green decorator icing.
The water was made by cutting a piece of parchment in the shape needed, then placing blue Hall's lozenges on the paper and melting them in a 350 degree oven. They needed to be flattened and spread with the back of a spoon, but that actually helped make the water look wavy and realistic! We laid the melted hard candy over a layer of blue decorator icing.
Time to add the stripes to the lighthouse - chocolate chips and white baking chips. This was painstaking work for this pair of active 12-year-olds. I was very proud of them and the effort they put into their work.
TA DA! Good job, guys.
Here are the previous year's creations.
