Here’s how to build large gingerbread structures: by creating boxes and first allowing their sides to harden before adding roofs and stacking them. All the pieces should be decorated in advance and allowed to dry completely before assembly.
It helps to designate an entire closet to the gingerbread house operation so that there’s somewhere safe to store the finished parts.
