Nonnie Cargas takes the reader on an exciting journey from the basics like making, mixing, and baking the dough to constructing and decorating any of the 13 delightful, original patterns including the Swiss chalet, Southwestern ranch, and the country church. Readers will take great delight in decorating their creations with such items as donuts, coffee, bullion cubes, dried fruit, and brown sugar. Other highlights include a complete resource guide that is valuable to any gingerbread enthusiast, project ideas for leftover dough, advice for throwing a party and entering and judging contests, and a beautiful gallery of gingerbread houses from the United States, England, Canada, and Australia.
