What should Gingerbread Exchange offer you?
« on: November 30, 2018, 05:20:14 pm »
Hey everybody!  Happy Gingerbread-Season!  ;D

I recently encountered a career change (corporate downsizing)... which means I am free to spend more time gingerbreading, and figuring out what I want to do when I grow up!   :o

Question for you all... what would you like to see more of on Gingerbread Exchange?  More templates?  How-To POSTS?  How-To VIDEOS? More RECIPES?

What would make site more helpful for you to enjoy the art of gingerbreading? ???

Post your thoughts, comments, suggestions below!  I'm all ears!  :-*

More templates please!!!  I love making gingerbread houses and would so enjoy trying some new and unique houses, or even other items!  I ❤️❤️❤️ Your site!   Maybe things like, trees,maybe a car, a possibly a tree house pattern, an elephant?  Anything different could be fun!!!

I also would be interested in new templates ([patterns) along with pictures of the finished project.  Also suggestions of books about gingerbread, and on line sites that might be of interest.  And of course, lots of pictures!

Thanks so much for the opportunity to contribute!
I'm a teacher, and make small gingerbread houses with my classes and even with other teachers. They all love learning about the ingredients, where they come from, and the history of gingerbread.

I'd like to see more "how to's" along the lines of gifting gingerbread houses. Like: the best eating/ construction gingerbread, how to pack house pieces up for mailing, making mini gingerbread houses, icing that sets quickly so a construction can be made in just a couple of hours, what's the best way to color icing, what other structures could be made other than houses, diabetic friendly gingerbread house ingredients...

Thanks again, and happy gingerbreading to us all!

I would love to see unique ideas for decorating. I love using things that are edible, but not necessarily candy.

More templates including templates for smaller houses.  I make four custom houses a year and a ton of tiny houses for friends.   I am not technically great but love making them.  Most templates I find have too many technical pieces or are too big.  This year I made 26 houses.  I made my daughter a beach house, my son a modern house, my husband the Amytiville horror house.   I love looking at your site and seeing peoples tips and tricks as well.  It is a very nice website.

I'd like to see more templates too!  Maybe some planes, trains and automobile templates (Lol), and I'd love to see some templates that are unique and unusual. All I can typically find is gingerbread houses!  Gingerbread making can be easy or elaborate!  It would be really neat to find other stuff to make with gingerbread. Yes, I still like the houses, but I'd love to go deeper into gingerbread. I thought about joining up for a master class, the problem is, most are in a different language.  Anybody here that makes gingerbread everything!! Well anyways, that's my dream! LOL

I would like to see some recipes, esp for gingerbread clay--I can find ingredients, but not the proportions.  Also techniques--how to make a round tower? Wrapping partially baked gingerbread around a can doesn't work for me.

Iíd like to see more instructions/ideas  about things like windows, trees, figures, etc.  Iíve done color flow windows but Wilton discontinued that so Iím looking for alternatives. Also helpful ideas on designing houses based on existing buildings.

I would love to see more templates too.  My students build gingerbread houses every year for a competition and unique templates always help.  Something in the master or expert category would be so greatly appreciated!  Thank you!
