Gingerbread house doors are an important part of cookie architecture since one of the goals is to make people want to come into your gingerbread house.
A gingerbread house‘s front lawn should be well landscaped.
I recommend offering lots of candy around the front door, to entice passersby to want to come in.
This front porch has a white chocolate dipped pretzel railing with pirouette columns and chocolate cookie stairs.
I like to affix royal icing wreaths on my gingerbread house front doors.
Any pattern can be embossed or overlaid on gingerbread doors and parts. Above = raw gingerbread dough. Below = baked gingerbread dough.
Instructions on how to emboss and overlay gingerbread dough are in the following video ebook:

The nicer you make your gingerbread house’s front door, the more people will knock on your cookie to come in!
