I was so excited to get this book as some of the gingerbread constructions looked both challenging and amazing and that's what I am looking for. I opened the book and drooled at some of the creations, while others seemed very basic and almost sloppy. Then I realized that there are no templates for these creations! How incredibly disappointing. There are a few patterns at the back of the book: one basic house (the kind that are free all over the internet)and some bits and pieces like lamp posts and wagons. There are neither patterns nor dimensions for any of the other constructions. What this book does offer is general information on technique and materials. It also includes some guidance for designing your own templates should you decide to construct your own house without a template. And if you buy this book, you will certainly need that advice...

I had always wanted to make a gingerbread house but was afraid to try it. I do many different types of crafts but none where the item is made of just food. That seemed too daunting for me.
But when I recieved my copy of "Making Great Gingerbread Houses" my fears left. I read the whole book ( the side "tips" helped allot ) and proceeded to make my first Gingerbread House.
The photos and directions for asembling their "Basic House" were simple and made the process basicly mistake proof for me.
Their ideas for decorating along with photos of completed houses with differnt ideas for this helped me to realize that sometimes less is NOT more....at least when making gingerbread houses.
Even some of the more complicated houses became a possible future house for me to make once I read all of the information that they supplied with the photos.
With their information on " form real life to gingerbread" and their templates I understand the basics of gingerbread houses.
Inns, cottages,chaples,castles,villages and even a riverboat, you are only limited to your imagination.
And....the dough recipe makes for GREAT cookies.
I would recoment this book to nayone that wants to learn the ins and outs of gingerbread houses.

If you are seeking the inside secrets to gingerbread artistry, don't expect much from this book. This book doesn't even begin to cover the many gingerbread/food techniques currently available -- and that home builders can use -- which mimic real-life or fantasy -- building structures and contents. I thought that many of the instructions shown were too simple and general -- the reader deserved to read more details, more inside information on how to work with food items to create effects -- especially since the author is a pastry chef! The book's description also promises photos of the Grove Park Inn's gingerbread competition entries. But if you expect to see the competition's top of the line entries featuring incredible details, don't. I looked forward to receiving this book. I'm sorry I bought it.
