Chilling your dough!  A good hour in the fridge (or 15 minutes in a snow bank) will make dough easier to roll, AND I found another tip online, once you have your pieces cut out, Chill them for 15 minutes before baking them! they'll hold their shape better!
Thanks for the tips! I wish I had a snow bank! Mom keeps the fridge full of HER baking stuff. Left over frosting, ya get the idea!
Since I never made a gingerbread house before... This is very helpful. If I can get in the mood this week, I'll give it a go.

I'm not eligible to enter and this was from a kit, so I thought I'd share here! Smiley  baby.sweets4ever and his grandparents made their first gingerbread house together this year!  It was so fun watching them create their lil' house.  He just turned 2 in October, so there were lots of, "Wowww!" and, "That's amazing!" comments coming from him as he learned to squish the candies in to the royal icing.



I later added a back patio and a hot tub... Grin


I hope everyone's houses are coming along well!  I cannot wait to see all of the treats!

I'm not playing either, but wanted to share the one that Lana decorated this year.  She made the tree in her school and added the reindeer school from another kit.  She was very proud of it.  Smiley


I am hoping to get my act together one of these years and make a real one from scratch.  Can't wait to see everyone's!!
