This is my first gingerbread house I made. Template of the house to the dough, baking and decorating. I have pictures posted here of the measurements of the house.Made for Recipezaar's first gingerbread contest. It took me 8 hours to complete. Be sure to have a bottle of wine or children to help. I made this myself in the wee hours of the night when I couldn't sleep. Good therapy! I also made a fireplace in the house using the scraps of the dough with a mirror on the mantle with stockings hung. Using a door to get my hand through. I didn't decide to do this till after the house was assembled so be sure to plan to do it before the roof goes on. If the pieces aren't exactly even and don't come together with exact precision, don't worry the royal Icing can act as a filler.
