Crafty Critterz – Sugar Igloo

This craft from our archives makes one sweet decoration!


What you need:

  • 1lb Box of sugar cubes
  • 1lb Powdered sugar
  • ½ Tsp cream of tartar
  • 3 Egg whites
  • 1 Circle pattern (the size of a CD disk)
  • Medium bowl
  • Whisk

What you do:

  1. To make royal icing combine all ingredients in a medium bowl with whisk until sugar is dissolved and mixture is light and fluffy.
  2. Start by laying a base row of sugar cubes around your circle template, leaving space for the entrance.
  3. Using your royal icing sugar as “glue” add layers of cubes, one row at a time, decreasing the circumference as you build upwards staggering  the cubes the way a builder lays bricks.
  4. Allow the igloo to dry completely.

Display your Sugar Igloo on a window ledge or on the table for everyone to enjoy it!

    I’d probably eat the bricks! LOL! It’s super cute — I might make one instead of a gingerbread house this year — you could put a lot of decorations on it and around it.

    Super cute! I’m not sure if this would work or ruin it, but maybe spray it with a light shellac so it stays nice and so bugs won’t get into it!
