Just imagined this room of mobloggers all making gingerbread houses,possibly in pairs or small teams

you, Beth, Helen, swamprose, Factotum, Euphro, JC, Carole, Lou & P, Nige, Gael Bronx, Marty, Chenav, Hildegard, - the list is never ending and not forgetting Alfie and old friends like Steve and Joe and Ninja Code Monkey and the names just keep rushing in... Earthlad, Wendle. Paintist, Heather, Gavin ... I've got to stop they're still flooding in
the creativity would be astounding, the competition fierce and it would be so much fun :)

The whole cardboard template thing is a good idea, except - roll/cut uncooked dough to slightly bigger than the template, bake, then fine cut to exact shape as soon as it comes out of the oven and is still soft. It'll harden up after a few minutes.

I only used one template piece, I just flipped it over for two of the walls. Then you can be sure they're all exactly the same. The roof beams I cut with a ruler and a sharp knife.
