Freezing Gingerbread after baking molds

I would like to bake the gingerbread in the molds and freeze to decorate with my grandchildren when they come for thanksgiving.

Can I mix, bake in the molds, then freeze and put together and decorate when they come. I would have to bake 4 or 5 houses one for each family and would not have time to do this when they are here.

Please advise.

No Need to Freeze

I don't think you would need to freeze Gingerbread unless you live in a very humid climate and you're afraid of the gingerbread becoming soggy. It's made to stay durable after baking --- kind of like a brick --- once you've baked it, you shouldn't have to freeze it. Just store it wrapped in foil or celophane somewhere it won't get eaten or broken. Freezing and then thawing baked gingerbread may very well have an adverse affect on the bread consistency.
