This one hasn't been bumped in a while. icon_smile.gif

I plan to do a Haunted Gingerbread Mansion this year (even though I've never done a little one before, I'm ambitious. lol) for Halloween, and then, depending on how terribly that goes, I might enter one in a competition in November.

I actually came looking for book recommendations, but BWB has mostly taken care of that for me.

Anyone else planning anything this year?

That is so funny! I was just coming in to refresh this topic myself! You beat me to it cinderspritzer!!! I am hoping to do a Halloween House for the kids I baby-sit... I have a bazillion birthdays in October so I was thinking of starting now which would be fine, I'm sure, since my Spring House was baked for Christmas (never got around to doing it for Christmas so I switched to a Spring theme) and the gingerbread held fine for at least 4 months. Once it got humid, I had to toss it. icon_cry.gif I figure, we are moving out of the humidity again so I should be able to bake and keep it from wilting before Halloween.

As well, I will start planning my Christmas houses in November. Each year, my husband's family gathers on a large scale and I produce a house to be given away to the family who is hosting that year. Then I make little houses to give to all my kiddos --very traditional houses loaded with candy easy to pick off and pop into little mouths.

My main goal for my family this year is a Victorian Mansion. I found the pattern in a 1960's Good Housekeeping magazine (which by the way is a great source for old patterns... they used to feature one each Christmas.)

Happy Baking, gingerbread friends!

Someone started another gingerbread thread here on CC -- let's see if we can't marry these two threads: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopicp-6593872.html#6593872

I checked the other posting as well. Gingerbread is a vital sugar art... does anyone else think this original thread should be nominated as a "sticky?'" It's chock-full-o vital information for gingerbread enthusiasts. icon_biggrin.gif

Didn't have time to read the whole thread, but I thought I'd throw these in here. I LOVE doing gingerbread competitions, but don't know if I'll have time this year. icon_surprised.gif( There's a gorgeous 1920's hotel on the river near where I live that I've been wanting to re-create in gingerbread for about 3 years now... oh well, there's always next year....

Great thread!! I'm amazed by the wonderful structures you've all shared. Thanks!

I'm going to be making a gingerbread house to show and raffle off at a Christmas fair coming up at the end of November. I have my design ready, but I have a question: Does anyone know how to make a curved roof? I mean, so the slope has a whimisical curve to it. (not sure if that's clear... am thinking a little like a Japanese pagoda..?)

I'm wondering if I bake the gingerbread flat, take it out of the oven, quickly re-cut to get nice, clean lines, and then rest on a flexible cutting mat set at the right curve. Does that sound like it would work?

Thanks for any input from those more experienced than I!!
