I need help too - roof sliding off!
by: Becca

My roof just slides off too. I have perfect sticky icing glue, but the roof just slides off. I wish I had made the roof slabs much thinner. They are just too heavy. :-(

Glue for gingerbread houses
by: Ann

Usually you would use royal icing for glue. It should consist of 4 cups confectioner sugar, 3 tablespoons of Meringue powder and a little water. Beat this with you hand mixer until you have the consistency of toothpaste. That's the glue recipe.
