Holiday Prep.: The icing

Does anyone think that Marshmallows would be good for making the gingerbread house? I was thinking that it might dry hard and act as an icing. Thoughts?

I found a recipe here that I thought would work. It uses...

3 Tbs. (21 g) gelatin
1/2 cup water

2 cups maple syrup

1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. vanilla extract

That's an interesting idea. I've never made marshmallows, so I have no experience to draw upon, but I'm thinking it's worth a try. Worst case scenario, you end up with marshmallows that won't hold the gingerbread house, but would be delicious nonetheless!

Someone over on ravelry.com suggested that rice glue might work. What a great idea. Here's the link: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Rice-Glue

I wonder if I added honey or maple syrup to it...
