What You’ll Need

  • Corn tortilla
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon raw sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon honey (to stick the pieces together)
  • Small bunch of green grapes (still on the stem)
  • Small slice of an unpeeled red apple (optional)
  • Mr. Fredricksen’s Floating House Fruit Treat Template
  • Clean craft knife
  • Pastry brush
  • Small heart-shape fondant cutter
How To Make It
  1. Print the template and use the pieces to cut matching shapes from the corn tortilla. For the best results, use a craft knife for slicing the tortilla. Don’t forget to cut out the window and door openings, as well as the small dormer lines (shown on the template)
  2. Toast the three tortilla cutouts in a small fry pan over medium-low heat just long enough to crisp them without making them curl too much. Remove the pieces from the pan and brush the tops very lightly with canola oil. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and stir to mix them. Immediately sprinkle the mixture onto the tortilla pieces.
  3. To assemble the pieces, set the house front atop the base, using a bit of honey to “glue” the two layers together. Then stick the window bay piece in place to the left of the door.
  4. Wash and dry the grapes, being careful not to pull them off their stems. Place the bunch on a serving place with the stem pointing down, so that it resembles a bouquet of balloons.
  5. Set the tortilla house below the bouquet, positioning it so that the chimney overlaps the end of the grape stem.
  6.  To turn the treat into a sweet valentine, use the heart-shape fondant cutter to cut a small heart from the red apple slice, and tuck the cutout into the balloon bouquet.
