Self-supporting gingerbread house
With CutterKit, your gingerbread house becomes self-supporting. The walls and roof panels have been designed to hook together after cooking so that assembling your house is easy and safe. CutterKit is made in Norway from food safe plastic. The molds are very durable and can be cleaned in a dishwasher. Before assembling, why not let the children decorate the walls and roofs?
Put the gingerbread dough on a baking paper. Make the dough about 2-3 mm thin. Then distribute the CutterKit parts upside down on the dough. Since you need 2 roofs, 2 short walls and 2 long walls, you might not have room for all pieces in your oven at the same time.
Cut around the parts with some clearance. Take away the excess dough.
Cool tip: Fill the windows with crushed sweets, and you will have "glass windows" as the sweets melt in the oven!
Do not cut out anything else at this stage!
Cook in the oven for about 8-10 minutes at 200 degrees C /400F.
Right after cooking, the gingerbread will be very soft. Now, with the gingerbread still on the cooking plate, cut out the exact and final parts for your house, using the sharp edges of your CutterKit molds.
The excess gingerbread outside the cut is, of course, edible...
Time for assembly. First, hook a short wall with a long wall, then another long wall and the connecting short wall. Put the roof on for a complete house. You need not use any hot, melted sugar or other "glue". With CutterKit the house become self-supporting.
