I want to take a Gingerbread House to work to decorate our office, but does anyone have any experience with how dry it will be after hours out in the air?

Will it still be edible?

Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas party.gif

I suppose it would depend on what you use to create it.

do you plan on eating it? Ive kept one for over a year, not to be eaten of course. If you want to eat it i would think it would be ok for a week or so before it gets extra hard and is only good for tea-dunking!!

Like EVER! Gingerbread cookies were made with lots of spice so they could last a long time exposed to air and nothing last like Royal Icing. Never spoils once its dry and stays dry.
