Maria shares tips for building the perfect gingerbread house.

  • Use royal icing because this is really going to hold the gingerbread house together and act like your glue. Just add some water. Butter cream frosting can leave marks on your gingerbread house so stick with the royal icing.

  • To create an intricate house, decorate before putting the house together because it is easier to decorate before it is assembled.

  • Transportation is often overlooked. Use a box lid with a strong base and a lip on it because this is going to make transportation much easier!
