Spooky Sugar Castle

We finally finished moving into this lovely little home of ours, and to celebrate we decided to build a Halloween castle.

I thought it might be fun to share how we did it, so you can give it a try with your little ones,too!

You will need..

about 3 packs of sugar cubes,
one bag of sugar crystals,
Halloween sweets,
lots and lots of icing.

Start by making four 3×3 sugar cubes squares in four corners of a tray,
then connect them with more sugar cubes. leave room for an opening near the front of your castle.

Dip sugar cubes into icing and then alternate how you place them, one row flat, one row standing up sideways.
It’s sort of hard to explain, but maybe you can tell from this picture how it’s done.

Do four rows for the towers and continue for another four rows on your main castle building.
When you are done you can decorate with Halloween sweets!
I love the bats that we glued to the castle wall with icing!

I do hope this will become a family tradition in our home, because it really was lots of fun to build.
I already have lots of other ideas for more decorations, I can’t wait till next year!
We used a little Christmas candle inside, but I think I will swap it for a little tea light, just to make sure.

    That is so gorgeous and creative. We don’t do anything for halloween except remember the saints in our prayers, but actually that could be adapted for us, as a sort of symbol of the saints being safe in the “palace” of heaven or something. I just really want to do it! Does it smell all sweet and tempting?
