Gingerbread Woodcutter’s Cabin

Share it!   


I made this gingerbread ‘woodcutter’s cabin’ this past winter.  (Hurray, I can actually refer to winter as a thing of the past now!)  The design is completely from Teresa Layman’s book, Gingerbread: Things to Make and Bake.

This isn’t the first gingerbread house I’ve made, but Teresa was definitely the main inspiration of my gingerbread house making obsession. About 7ish years I ago I decided to try my hand at my first one, and hers was the book I stumbled accross and bought. She describes steps in meticulous detail… She doesn’t leave a stone unturned in terms of explaining things! Not only that, her designs are so pretty and charming. I love her stuff so much I actually contacted her and chatted with her on the phone. She’s such a sweet person. In our conversation I asked if she would be doing any more books on gingerbreading, besides the two she already has published, and unfortunately her publisher told her that there were enough books on gingerbread in the stores. I contacted her publisher and put a request in. Alas, that was about 3 years ago now. (I know, I am crazy aren’t I!? When I like something I really go for it). In my opinion, hers are the best gingerbreading books out there.

This gingerbread house has a few non-edible elements included with it.  The chimney has cotton balls for smoke, two dollhouse sugar bags in front of the cabin, and lace on the inside for curtains.  You can’t see it, but I also like to put a tealight inside each house.  If we don’t eat it, I can insert a long matchstick through the windows and light the candle at night.  (It just can’t be on too long… no ventilation).

    Gotta check out the book. This house is adorable. I’ve been wanting to try to make one but have never worked up the nerve. I think your house would do really well in a gingerbread house contest they have each year between T-giving and Christmas at the Cleveland Botanical Center. Don’t ask me why they hold it at a Botanical Center, but they do. If I can find some of my photos from last year, I’ll send them to you.

    You did a great job on all of your houses! I have Teresa’s books too and have made the Christmas cottage and the Gepetto’s Toys. I am gearing up for the Victorian Farmhouse this year! I have looked at the pictures so many times and am amazed at her talent. I wish she would do another book too!

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty
    worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    Gorgeous gingerbread houses and useful tips, thank you! My friend and I make houses together each year. A lot of fun. I have a request in to Book Depository for Teresa’s book – fingers crossed. I wonder if you could tell me in the meantime how you cut out those gorgeous little square paned windows? Many thanks, Anita
