1. To make snow-topped trees, use green spearmint gumdrop leaves (available in bags in the candy section of your supermarket). Stand on the stem end to resemble trees. Using a small spatula or spoon, drizzle white Royal Icing over the top, smoothing surface of icing as needed. Allow about 15 minutes for icing to dry before using.
2. Place decorated cottage, church or house on a Styrofoam tray.
3. Make a path to the cottage using small candies that resemble stones.
4. Sprinkle the ground with flaked coconut and arrange snow-topped trees in the snow.
5. Add people as desired.
