Pretzel rod houses

Do you know


how fun and easy it is


to build a cabin Lincoln-log style


out of pretzel rods


cemented with daubs of frosting?


This is what happens when your son insists on a three-dimensional structure fire cake for his ninth birthday.

It would be fun to use in other ways as well—a woodsy/ hunting scene with a plastic deer in the front, and pine trees made of inverted waffle cones with frosting stars…

Or a twist on Christmas gingerbread houses…

What else?


Cut rods to desired lengths. Allow house to dry before adding a roof of graham crackers or other material on top.

what a great idea! loved the candles inside the house to make it actually burn. My almost 3 year old has been begging for a fire truck cake for the last half year. This looks so much easier than doing an actual fire truck cake. Thanks for the idea

“Pretzel rod houses??” And firemen? I don’t know, Shari. You just keep posting on the most controversial subjects.

I know. I can’t help myself, it’s so addicting.

Love it. I’m going to store this one away in my files for future use. We probably wouldn’t do the structural fire thing, but I think it would be a fun twist of a Christmas gingerbread house.

Considering your recent posts, it would make a good log cabin wedding cake topper for the outdoor minded couple.
