Step 2. Spread a little icing onto one biscuit and top with another to form the base of a house. Spread icing onto this top biscuit as well. Repeat to make six bases.

Step 3. Spread some more icing along the long edge of one biscuit and press it against another to create a V shape. Place this upside down onto a base, using icing to adhere. Repeat to make six houses.

Step 4. Decorate the houses with lollies, etc. using icing to stick them to the roof and base.
