Is just the thought of baking a whole gingerbread house too cumbersome for you? An easy way out is to make only one wall with gable that you decorate with icing and a ribbon. I used my normal gingerbread dough and rolled it out thinly directly on a parchment paper. I cut out a wall with a gable and a chimney on free hand with the help of a ruler. I used a small square shaped cookie cutter for the windows. I then carefully placed the parchment paper on a baking sheet and baked it for 6 minutes in 200 degrees C. When it was completely cool, I decorated it with icing, silver dragees and a ribbon. Don’t forget to make holes in your gable before you bake it if you want to thread it with ribbons.
