I have tried so many times to make a gingerbread house. Every time either the template wasn't right, the recipe sucked, the shape changed in the oven, my icing didn't hold. You name it, it happened.
But guess what? I finally did it.
The gingerbread and icing recipes are here, the template here. You'll need to print the template three times so you can cut out each shape.
You need something that the gingerbread can lean against as the icing sets, I used cans. Grab the front wall and a little side one and ice one edge, then press together and lean a can up against both walls.
