  1. I have been making gingerbread houses for 35 plus years. I wanted to try a new recipe since my houses turn out great, but I always struggle with rising/spreading in the patterns.
    I have so far made 3 batches of the small batch and each batch seems to have the consistency of sand – not wet and sticky as described. Help! I don’t think these will hold together. I have followed all directions to a T and don’t know what may be wrong.

  2. I love doing gingerbread houses I mess up with measuring the peices I am sure things will be a lot more smooth with premeasured templets.

  3. Hi purchase on 12/08 have heard nothing from PayPal or wicked good. Please respond not sure what went wrong. I see a transaction in my bank account say PayPal wicked good “ pending”

    • I would love to help you. According to my records, it appears that the payment successfully processed and the download link was issued without delay to the email address associated with your paypal account (yours ends in Unfortunately, I do not have the option to message you via paypal but I just attempted to issue a copy of the book as an email attachment, sent to that same address. It didn’t work. I received the following error message: the address couldn’t be found, or is unable to receive mail. Since this is the only email I have on file under your name, I don’t know how else to reach out to you. Hopefully you will come back to this page and find this reply. If/when you do, please email me from a functional account at and I will send your copy of the book ASAP.

  4. Hi Kristen, I am writing you from Germany: I am orthodotist and me and my staff love to decorate our office for christmas time. Last year we tried to make a giant gingerbread house, but due to our “unprofessional” attempts, it broke…
    This year, I had a new project in mind… a winter castle – and my staff is amazing and shares my enthusiasm. So I did some research and found your website, bought your gingerbreadhouse books, watched your tutorials and we got started ! We followed ALL of your instructions and I have to say: You did such a fantastic job, all your recepies came out just like you described, the dough is fabulous, we tested and used all different icing consistancies, we even bought the blue painters scotch tape your recommended for assembling – everything is perfectly decribed, we didn´t have ANY failure or problems with anything – your books and tutorials AND your WORK are AWESOME – YOU ARE AWESOME !!!! Thank you for all the high valuable information – I highly recommed everything !!!
    Of course our work isn´t as perfect as yours, but it´s our first project and we did it as a team, so we are quite happy with it 🙂
    All the best for you !!! And Merry Christmas !!

    • I LOVE IT SO MUCH! Wow! Wow! Wow! You and your team did an incredible job together. I am so impressed by the size and complexity of your design. I love what you all did with the piping. I see the bricks and can appreciate the tremendous amount of work that went into making them. I see how the top level of the tallest tower flares out – it’s a nice touch!

      Nicola, thank you so very much for sharing the photo and for leaving such a nice comment as well. It brought me joy.

      You made it into the Hall of Fame:

    • Yes you can definitely freeze the dough. It lasts for a long time, about a week in the refrigerator and at least month in the freezer depending on the efficacy of the freezer and how effectively the dough is sealed. I haven’t ever attempted freezing the baked cookies so I can’t speak to that.

        • It depends on the quality of the environment and how thoroughly they are iced (icing seals and preserves the surface of the cookies). Some of my pieces have lasted for years on display. If you intend for your donations to be eaten, they will taste freshest if they are made/donated within the same week. You can extend their shelf life and protect them from the elements by wrapping them in clear cello. A couple of bakeries where I worked packaged their gingerbread houses this way (like how gift baskets are wrapped) and it looked great, showed off the product well.

    • Teresa,
      My records show that you have made some download attempts so I assume you found your access in the email account associated with your paypal account, yes? I’m glad that you were able to solve your own issue. Feel free to email me if you are still having technical difficulties.

  5. Muchas gracias por ilustrarnos el paso a paso. Mi inquietud ha sido hacer un nacimiento. Y la verdad se me hacia muy complicado pero con tus pasos, creo poder lograrlo.
    quisiera comprar tu e-book. Me seria de mucha ayuda

  6. Have to say this an awesome book, the amount of info is amazing. I have taken many of the techniques into my general cake decorating as well so it is not just for gingerbread that’s for sure.

  7. Well, over a year since the last post, but I am thrilled to get this book!!! I have made Christmas Gingerbread Houses with the kids for 23 years… the tips in this book will elevate it t a whole new level!!! THANK YOU!!

  8. Lots of information I really want, but I’d rather have a paper book. When will it be for sale & where? Also, you have a book on modeling clay? Where is that available?
