So our attempt at an edible log cabin did come up a little shabby. We learned a lot from our mistakes though. Overall it was loads of fun to make and the kids loved eating it. I would definitely make this again for a festive Christmas gathering perhaps not so rustically ugly next time. I should have poured some dip over the top to hide it’s imperfections. 🙂
Start by creating the foundations to your log cabin. We used carrots that had been cut flat to sit firmly on the plate. Additionally you will need toothpicks to secure the logs. We popped a layer of cream cheese in our logs but due to the heat in the room it was simply melting off. The lesson would be to use a firm cream cheese of good quality nature.
The roof was constructed using cardboard wrapped in foil. We should have used a firmer board as it started to flop under all the meat. We reinforced it with some juice cartons for stability.
The garden was fun to make and we used scraps we had in the kitchen making sure to use dip (for dipping the vegetables in).
