That's why Santa Claus started eating! Let's give F, who always works hard, a dream home!
Christmas is a candy house, and I want to give Mr. F, who always works hard, a dream and healing. That's why I decided to make my own home for sweets.
■ Draw a blueprint
When making a candy house, first draw a blueprint.
Considering the candy house of the fairy tale "Hansel and Gretel", I designed it with the concept of "a log house built on a snowy mountain". The base walls and roof will be created, and finally they will be combined to complete the project. Alright, the simulation is perfect.
■ Prepare materials
Then, I tried to arrange the materials according to the design drawing. At the end of the year, there are things to buy, so as a result of keeping costs down to the limit, the ingredients look like the following.
[Outer wall of the house]
Morinaga's biscuits Meiji's chocolate bar Lotte's chocolate bar
[Decorations such as snow]
Marble chocolate coconut long powdered sugar In addition, chocolate pen for decoration and star-shaped sugar confectionery
Now you are ready! Now that you have a solid image of the completed drawing in your brain, you can start working on it.
■ Assemble the outer wall and roof respectively
First, the base part of the roof is made by connecting the wafer "Mugifa", which Takeda Confectionery made by saying "Thank you" 1 million times.
The glue used is a mixture of powdered sugar and egg whites. It seems that you can expect considerable adhesive strength.
Once you have the foundation for the barley, you can paste the chocolate bars that have been separated one by one. This becomes a roof tile.
Two roofs are completed on each side! I was shocked to see the clock, and it took me two and a half hours to do this much work. Christmas day is about to set. I have to hurry ...!
Next, make an outer wall. In order to give a feeling of a log house, we will connect good log-shaped sticks to make four walls.
Here, the adhesive strength of the glue made from powdered sugar has reached its limit. Since Umaibo is a cylinder, it has few ground planes, and this glue cannot provide sufficient adhesion.
That's why the new chocolate is in a water bath ! When this is applied, it exerts a fairly strong adhesive force when it dries.
Somehow, I managed to complete 4 walls and 2 roofs!
■ A rainy day upset
Now, from here on, combine all the parts ...? Isn't this obviously the roof heavier ...? I was aware of it, but this would turn the house over ...
So I changed my schedule in a hurry. We decided to combine the wafer with chocolate pasted on the wall and the light Umaibo on the roof, which is the opposite of the original positioning. Building a house is hard ...
■ Combine outer walls
Combine the four wafers and the outer wall of the chocolate in a square using a water bath chocolate. Here, we will make a cookie door and a wafer window and attach them to the wall.
■ Decorate the roof
The roof should be decorated with snow in advance. Coconut long and excess powdered sugar are used for snow. Furthermore, like Christmas, I also sprinkled sugar confectionery in the shape of a star.
■ Finally united!
It's finally time to combine the walls and the roof! Carefully, carefully put the roof on ...
It's done! !! !! The total time required, including the time when I was at a loss, was a whopping 10 hours, and the candy house was finally completed! !! It was long...! Due to the lack of simulation in the brain, the trajectory was corrected many times on the way, but it looks insanely cute due to the twists and turns!
Now, take a look at the candy house that has been cultivated by hand salting from various angles.
What if you hang the roof with transparent thread? Or, why not take a picture of the roof and walls and combine them in Photoshop? I was about to lose all the temptations, but I'm glad I did my best ...!
A candy house full of sober hardships, invisible tears, dreams and hopes. I'm sure Mr. F will be impressed. Let's give it to him!
When I noticed it while making it, it was 26th, so I couldn't say anything about Mr. F's reaction, but the person who made it ended up being very satisfied.
Next year, Santa Claus will come to you who will always do his best ...! ??
