The Candy Cane Gingerbread Cottage is a fun little one-story gingerbread house based on the Minimal-Traditional style house, with a Side Open-Gabled roof (commonly referred to as a Cape Cod style). 


This style of house was known as the "house that could" - with a simple exterior design that gave the small house the appearance of maximum size.  Either assymetrical or symetrical, and may include varied window placement, small porches or carports, and perhaps a half-story finished living space under the roof (think attic bedroom).


This gingerbread house includes a front wing, two porches, and an exterior chimney on the side gable.  A fun intermediate skilled house to expand upon gingerbread skills.


All gingerbread house templates are full-size and ready to use. No enlarging or tracing required.


This gingerbread house paper template is pre-printed and shipped to you.  You cut-out the paper template pieces, cut pieces from your gingerbread dough, and assemble per the instructions provided. This pre-printed template does NOT include baked gingerbread pieces or candy.
