Cutting the already baked side of a gingerbread house

by Sarah

Help! I goofed and have managed to bake the 6 sides of our gingerbread houses without the triangles on the top of the two sides. I was hurting through the construction of two huge houses and just skipped over the triangle roof. I really don't want to have to make the sides again. Is there something special I could do to cut the already baked, and hardened, dough to salvage it?

It can be done...

My husband got tired of me using his tools last year and gave me a dremel tool for Christmas. I use it on my Gingerbread A Lot. I am a little hard core, and attend the National Gingerbread House Competition In Asheville, at the Omni Grove Park Inn. The Dremel has saved me more than once.

Now, to get to the top ten table!

another way that worked very well for me was to use a cheese grater once the walls had hardened.

Cutting baked gingerbread

I've done this before. I took a ruler and a serrated steak knife and used it like a saw, with the ruler as a guide.....slowly at first with light pressure. Good luck.
