gingerbread towers

How would i be able to make round gingerbread towers? Would I be able to drape the gingerbread around a rolling pin and bake that in the oven or would the rolling pin go on fire? thank you :)

Are you making a gingerbread castle? *-*

I would cook it first and then turn it around something (like rolling pin), when it's still hot.

Not sure that would work

Gingerbread gets awfully soft while it's cooking, so it's difficult to get it to bake on anything very tall. What I do for curved pieces is make several gingerbread cookies that are each slightly curved and then "glue" them together with royal icing (or melted chocolate).

You can make a curved structure to bake the gingerbread on out of anything flexible that won't burn. I typically use sheets of wire or even crumpled up aluminum foil and then lay a flexible silicone baking pan on top and then the gingerbread on top of that. Of course, you can't get the edges too steep or the gingerbread will just fall down the sides while baking. Therefore, it's difficult to make anything super-curved.

Another option for tall structures is to bake gingerbread "bricks" and then stack and glue them together.

Anyone else have ideas?

Perhaps using a tall thin can would work.
