I was inspired by some gingerbread AT-AT walkers I saw online and decided to try my hand at creating one. Although you can create your own gingerbread pieces, I did it the easy way and bought these pre-made ones from IKEA
. I used about 3-4 packs of these, which was plenty. The great thing is that these pieces are large enough so you can cut them into the shapes you want.
For the icing, I used about 4 cups powdered sugar and a 1/4 cup of milk. You can add more/less powdered sugar depending on how thick you want the icing to be.
Other optional ingredients:
-Mini M&Ms (Christmas colors)
-2 rolls of Life Savers (mixed colors)
