Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gingerbread and craft construction would seem to be timeless topics, but photographs of the results become dated. This new edition of a 1984 title is a useful volume for its descriptions of gingerbread house construction techniques, process photographs, and historical recipes for gingerbread and corollary items such as sauces and drinks; however, the end-result photographs detract. Design details and tastes, if you'll forgive the pun, change. Reprints over 25 years old, especially photo-heavy craft titles, should feature new images. Recommended only for those seeking a book with a lot of gingerbread-centric recipes.
