Who says you need snow to make an igloo?
According to FUN FOODS
by Wim Kros, you can
a complete polar landscape out of sugar
cubes, the perfect touch for a winter tea
laying a base row of sugar cubes around a
7-inch-diameter cardboard circle, leaving
space for the entrance. Using a mortar of 2
egg whites mixed with 3 cups confectioners'
sugar, add subsequent layers of cubes, one
row at a time, decreasing the circumference
gradually as you go. Apply the mortar to the
top cubes, not to those already in place. Be
sure to work alternately left and right from
the entrance toward the back of the igloo
and stagger the cubes the way a builder lays
bricks. Build a total of 10 layers, stopping
halfway through the construction to let the
igloo dry. Make the arch and roof
separately, working on a flat surface. When
they are dry, glue them in place. Allow the
igloo to dry completely, then sprinkle with
a blizzard of sugar.
