Turn dough (very crumbly at this stage) out onto Thermomat and gently bring together. Divide dough into 3 portions, wrap and refridgerate for 30mins minimum.
When chilled roll each piece out to 1 cm thickness and cut out template pieces as follows:
using 1cm graph paper mark out the following
Sides: 14cm x 12cm cut 2 in the centre of each side remove a small rectangle 4cm x 3cm for the window
Rear: 16cm x 15cm find the mid point on one of the longer edges, mark. On each of the shorter edges, place a mark 4cm down. Draw a line from the mid point marker to each mark 4cm down on each side, forming a peak. Cut 2. On one of these pieces cut out a door and using a small cookie cutter, cut out a window above the door.
Roof: 16cm x 11cm cut 2
Crush boiled lollies and fill each window space with lollie bits - these will melt to form 'stained glass'
Bake on silicone paper for 10 to 15mins or until golden brown. Keeping on paper, remove from tray and leave to cool completely before progressing to next step.
Add egg white to TM bowl and mix 15secs sp 5. Set blade mixing to speed 5 and add in icing sugar and lemon juice until fully combined. Place in airtight container until required - thermoserver works well.
Fill piping bag with icing.
Once gingerbread is completely cooled, pipe a rectangle onto your serving plate and stand 1 x side in icing foundation; run a seam of icing down one side and stick rear of house in place; hold until set (5 mins); add in other side and then front of house. Leave to set for a minimum of 30 minutes. The longer you can leave it at this stage, the better your outcome will be!
Add roof into place by securing with icing. Leave to set.
Now get to work with your decorations!!! Have heaps of fun!!
