Process

For Gingerbread dough

  • Heat jaggery in a pot on low flame. Add brown sugar and mix until the sugar is dissolved.

  • Add refined flour, baking powder, baking soda to the sauce and mix nicely till it forms a soft and sticky dough.
  • Add condensed milk and vanilla essence, incorporate it in the dough properly.
  • Dust your hands with refined flour and smooth out the dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and rest it for 30 minutes in a cool place (do not refrigerate) so it will harden.
  • Sprinkle flour over dough and rolling pin. Roll dough to a 1/4-inch thickness.
  • Use additional flour to avoid sticking.
  • Rub a little flour over the surface of the dough. Place the moulds on the dough, as many as moulds as will fit on the dough. Use a small sharp knife to cut out the moulds from the dough, wiping the knife surface clean frequently.
  • Cut out the following patterns for the gingerbread house template, Two rectangles, 3 by 5 inches, to make the front and back of the house. Two rectangles, 4 by 6 inches for the roof.

For Assembling the GingerBread House

  • Glue the two roof pieces to the pitched roofline of the house. Then, similarly, glue the sides and roof of the entryway together with icing. Attach the entryway to the front of the house.
  • Using the icing, stick sweets around the door and on the front of the house.
  • Dust the roof with icing sugar for a snowy effect.

 

For Icing

  • In a bowl, add water, icing sugar, lemon juice and mix well on a double boiler.
  • Until the icing is smooth and thick enough.

 

For Caramel Syrup

  • In a heavy bottom sauce pan, add caster sugar, water on medium flame.
