Miniature Gingerbread House Recipe

mini gingerbread house
 

Merry Christmas everyone, praying for a blessed Christmas and amazing new year for you in 2018. My youngest had to bring something special to school for a Christmas picnic which, due to school rules, was ‘not to be shared with others’. I sent him along with a picnic packed with his favourite things, a cucumber sandwich, strawberries, a drink and this miniature gingerbread house.

 

If you’d like to make your own miniature gingerbread house you’ll need

gingerbread dough (I used some left over from making this gingerbread house recipe)
Mini template mini gingerbread house template ann reardon
Miniature kitchen 1/12 scale (optional)
miniature lollies- I made mine out of fondant
Royal icing made from 1 egg white and 3/4 cup of icing sugar whipped. If you’d rather not use raw egg white see my alternative royal icing recipe
tweezers
a miniature kitchen (optional but lots of fun)

And finally to make a miniature gingerbread house look good you’ll need lots of patience. With all miniatures a little mistake looks big.

    Hi Ann-
    This was just SO cool! My family has the tradition of decorating gingerbread houses at Christmastime and I had never made gingerbread before. I was afraid that it would come out too dark and thin, but I love the spice blend in your recipe. Also, I am in a military family and am often without my electric stand mixer. I have a handheld one that I try to have with me but it won’t work on thicker doughs. Could you do more recipes that don’t require a stand mixer? I just want to say that all of your recipes are amazing and the things you come up with are simply fascinating!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Also interested on where I can purchase the working stove and other kitchen gadgets. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent. Merry Christmas!

    • Hi Lola Jie, Ann has collected lots of these pieces over many years, so there is no one supplier or brand she can recommend here. Ann either made them herself or purchased from a miniature store or eBay.

    Wow! Once more you have given us great pleasure in watching this amazing teeny weeny gingerbread house being done, thank you!
    Where did you get the real electric miniature Kitchen Aid mixer? I thought, no way is this small machine working, but it seems it does.
    Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you and your family!
