I'm having a hard time keeping the shape of the piece when cutting it out. the corners drag out and it is hard to get everything back to correct shape.

Trimming Ends
by: Stephanie

I’ve seen competitors use a scroll saw. I’m tempted to get one. Has anyone had any experience using a scroll saw to evenly trim ends of gingerbread?

Cutting gingerbread dough
by: Ami Hazell

Hi. Instead of cutting it and removing the excess before cooking, I cut my dough and leave about 1/2 inch around all my pieces so there's no where for it to spread to. I recut it while its still hot , right out of oven. (I replace my pattern on top and recut it.)
Hope that helps.

Try refrigerating it for longer before rolling and cutting out your gingerbread.

Another trick is to sprinkle more flour on the rolled out gingerbread.

Does anyone else here have any tips for cutting gingerbread without it stretching?
