Cutting Gingerbread after it's hardened

by smilinkyn

I have baked my gingerbread, and it's definitely sturdy, but now, my team I'm working with has decided to change the dimensions, and now I need to recut my gingerbread. HELP! How do I do this without damaging the gingerbread and undoing all the baking I've done so far? I need help quickly!

Another method for softening gingerbread
by: Kelly

I soften pre-baked gingerbread (typically before I eat it) by wrapping in a damp paper towel and microwaving for a few seconds. This might be possible with larger pre-baked gingerbread pieces as well.

Good luck and let us know what you try and how it turns out!

Cutting gingerbread

Try reheating the pieces in the oven. This may soften them enough to cut while still warm.
