I think, Daisy, you might just suprise yourself! Get the kids and dogs to go to bed, and stay up late! Or banish them! LOL!
But seriously, I have a great idea, I just think I'm going to let this pass, because I'm going to be working a month straight covering for someone.
I am just tired. I really hope someone makes the house I'm designing in my head!

Same! I can't wait to start on this, I think I might practice a little bit before I go for the real deal.

Oh yes, I am in!

Just gotta solve the problem of the incredibly sticky dough - everytime I've made gingerbread biscuits before it's been so soft I couldn't roll it out and cut and had to form 'blob biscuits' with my hands instead!

It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

I'm totally in, but I find that if you lightly flour your surface, and work on the parchment/foil you're going to bake the gingerbread on, (and also lightly flour that too) that you get cleaner cutouts, and less "blobs". it took me most of last night to figure this out... my roommates are LOVING me right now! also, very large, very thin spatulas, and bench scrapers are always helpful... Grin hope this helps somebody!  Wink

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!

There's no way I'd win, but I'm dying to make a gingerbread house. There's something about intricate crafts like this that really appeal.
