Every Thanksgiving my two granddaughters decorate gingerbread houses, and baking the houses falls on me. In the past, I have used a cast iron mold that requires one to cook half the house on one side of the mold and then turn it over to cook the pieces for the other half. To make two houses takes the better part of a day. I bought two of these silicone mold kits, which come with two molds so you can bake all the parts for a whole house at once. With two kits, I can make two entire houses at once. The silicone molds do not stick and are much easier than cast iron to un-mold if you allow them to cool as directed. My only complaint is that the directions (from "down under") use measurements in grams instead of America's usual volume measurements (cups, etc.). My converted recipe for two houses, filling the molds only half full (any more dough gives parts that are too thick, IMHO). I don't roll out the dough, but simply pack it into the molds in chunks and flatten with my fingers.: 1 cup brown sugar, sifted to remove lumps; 1/4 slightly rounded teaspoon salt; 2-1/3 cups treacle or golden syrup; 1 Tbsp ground ginger; 2-1/4 quarter-pound sticks of butter, softened; 6-1/4 cups all purpose flour; 2/3 tsp baking soda. Pack in molds and bake as directed. Have fun!

As a gingerbread house fanatic, I was thrilled to find this mold. I used it over a dozen times this Christmas, and it worked beautifully. The gingerbread pops out and the molds are very easy to clean. I did find that it was not necessary to fill the mold to the top, you can use just enough dough to get a solid piece, but it can be half as thick as the mold. This would make a fantastic gift, the packaging is very nice. If you are a serial gingerbread house baker, as I, having two sets helps production! Best gingerbread mold I have every seen or used.

I was a little leary of ordering this product as it is my first time using "silicone." I'm hooked!
This mold is just the right size and I love the fact that it comes with the tree and the two little gingerbread people.
Am planning on a decorating party for several little girls and this is going to make things much easier. BTW, the recipe on the mold that I received was "not" in metric. Not sure why there was on reviewer with the metric? Was glad though that she gave her recipe too. Now at least I have a choice:)
The shipping was quick too. Great job!

This mold is great..cooks evenly and cake releases from mold easily. Word of caution with this mold..do not fill it to the top with your gingerbread dough. It will come out far too thick. I adjusted depth of dough to half and it was perfect. Also, place both molds on a cookie sheet and keep them on the sheets until cake is cool.

This item worked great. I followed the directions except that it was easier to just place
the cookie dough in the mold than to roll it out!

For anyone wanting to build gingerbread houses but who does not have the time go through the trouble of cutting out templates, like myself, this is a great product. I have made six gingerbread houses with the mold so far this season which I have given as gifts. Everyone has loved the houses I have created. The mold is simple to use and clean and the pieces pop out easily. The recipe for the gingerbread dough that comes with the mold is also very good. The people that I have given the houses too talk about how much they enjoy the houses, not only visually, but also the aroma. I am happy to recommend this product.

Have used cast iron and stone molds in the past, this silicone mold is the best! Not heavy, easy to clean and house comes out perfect. Everyone from friends to co-workers are impressed with the results. Have used it to make both gingerbread and chocolate houses, both come out perfect.

We made a house using the mold and the instructions. It was easy and worked well. The walls parts came out of the mold readily and well formed.
