For this house I used the gingerbread dough recipe from masterchef. I swapped half the glucose syrup for molasses to give a deeper flavour (as per recipe below). To make this house required three batches of dough. The main reason I choose this recipe is that it does not require beaters – it was much quicker to make than recipes that I have used in the past and tastes beautiful. I love the smell of freshly baked gingerbread wafting through the house.

430g (15.17 ounces) butter roughly chopped
430g (15.17 ounces) caster sugar
250g (8.82 ounces) glucose syrup
260g (9.17 ounces) molasses
180g (6.35 ounces) milk
1195g (42.15 ounces) plain flour
12g (0.42 ounces) bicarb soda
20g (0.71 ounces) cinnamon
12g (0.42 ounces) ground cloves
12g (0.42 ounces) ground ginger
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Melt butter in a large saucepan add the glucose syrup, molasses and sugar and heat to 43 degrees to dissolve sugar.
Add the milk, stir then add flour bicarb and spices cook over low heat until mixture forms a paste.
Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the fridge to cool.
Roll out and cut pieces leaving border on as in picture.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.

    Hello! I download and printed the template but there are black lines that run over the A3 paper and it looks like some of the cut outs dont fit entirely on the PDF either??? Help pleaasseee :/
    I just would like to know if the things half on the paper is a “Nessessatiy”

    • Ann Ann says:

      Hi Anna, ignore the lines on the very edge of the page, that is the way it exported from indesign it repeated the things from the page before.

  6. Kathy Harris says:

    Is there a way to download the assembly and icing instructions. It would be much easier to have a paper copy when working with the sticky icing.


  7. Nicky Caldwell says:

    Hi. I downloaded the pdf for the cutouts for the UP house and we need some instructions on how to put it together. Does it not come with instructions? We only recieved the cutouts. Thanks.

  8. lorna McFadden says:

    I just tried to pay for the template of the gingerbread house from the movie up. It sent me to sign up for a paypal account, I wanted to pay with credit card, not sure if it went through or if I was charged. HELP!

    • Ann Ann says:

      hi lorna, you can pay by credit card it is just not the most obvious thing on the paypal page (they would rather you made an account with them). Just ignore all the paypal signup stuff on the page and look for pay by credit card

  9. Judi says:

    I am very interested in making this house, but according to the website the PDF plan is sold out. Is this a mistake, since it’s a downloadable doc?

    Thanks, Judi

  10. Rachel says:

    Is this template still available?

  11. Dean O'Brien says:
