Here's another royal icing version of a candy frequently found on gingerbread houses: gumdrops. I'd prefer to not use the real thing because they sure do get gummy, and quickly (in my damp climate, anyway). All you'll need is a round tip (I used #12), stiff consistency royal icing in any festive color, a flower nail, parchment paper squares, a glue stick, a Styrofoam block to rest the nail in, colored sprinkles, and a dusting pouch filled with a 50/50 blend of powdered sugar and cornstarch. Start by sticking a parchment square to the flower nail with a dab from the glue stick.
