hi jimme,
i am sorry to say that i no longer have the template (there were literally over 100+ pieces!) for that gingerbread house however is you look at this gingerbread house for 2011 you will find a link to the template in the blog! Hope this helps you out and good luck with your gingerbread house building.
regards,

Hi, my name is Jimme Steverson. I am currently in the culinary arts program at Amory Highschool. Every year our teacher lets us build and decorate our own gingerbread houses. This is my last year in culinary arts since I am a senior. I was hoping that you still had this template, and if you could send it to me? Thank you so much!

Hi, my name is Jimme Steverson. I am with the culinary arts program at Amory Highschool. I am a senior and this is my last year in culinary. Every year we always make a gingerbread house, I was hoping that you still had the template for this house, and if so, could you possibly email it to me? Thank you so much.

Hi jaime,
My dad enlarged each piece on a copier by around 120%. Then he cut out each piece on poster board to use as the templates for the gingerbread. My dad put the puzzle together first before making the templates. This gave him an idea of the pieces that we would need and the ones that didnt pertain to our house (like the inside of the house and the back of the house). I will be honest and tell you this was a VERY difficult and time consuming house to make and Ive made a lot of gingerbread houses over the years. For tips on making a gingerbread house check out my post called Gingerbread House Tips and Tricks. Good luck!

I bought the house on amazon. Did you just place the pieces over the gingerbread and cut around? Also did you assemble the wood puzzle for practice before putting the gingerbread house together? Any tips you may have?
BTW You are very talented and I am aspiring to make this house next year!

About to begin a house trying to emulate one of your designs - you are the ultimate gingerbread house inspiration, completely peerless and I love that you are always developing new techniques..

What do you use to light your houses?

Goodies By Anna

im insane! actually, most contests require that the whole house be edible and we add lights and wooden dowels to help support so theyre not usually eligible... maybe next years will be all edible..

Zomygawd. Do you enter these is contests or do them for pure pleasure? If you say pure pleasure, I may consider you insane.

hi lauri, So glad you like the house. I dont have the templates any longer but i wouldnt be able to post it anyways... tons tons of pieces! I used a 3D Fantasy Puzzle from Amazon as the template. Perhaps you could try that? Good luck to you and your gingerbread house!

Holy cow. I was googling gingerbread house inspiration and I happen upon this...that is talent right there :D

Lauri

Wow. I am stunned! I'd like to try something like this with my brother, could you put the templates here so I could use them as a help? I can't do templates by myself, not good in such things! :( Thanks for sharing this amazing house :)

Goodies By Anna

Thanks Katie! I made this house with the help of my Dad. Hes the architect! Here is a link to the house that we based the Gingerbread House on: http://www.amazon.com/Puzzled-Inc-1801-Fantasy-Villa/dp/B000HWW4B4/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8qid=1418058170sr=8-9keywords=3d+puzzle+villa
