Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Where's the Christmas celebrant who hasn't harbored thoughts of cooking up an edible cottage? In this beautifully illustrated book, sugarcraftsman and teacher Stellingwerf tells readers how to create a number of apparently exquisite gingerbread constructions. He knows his territory. The author provides explicit directions for fabricating everything from gingerbread cookies lavished with icing to elegant windowed edifices--even a carousel with gingerbread horses. These inventions are undoubtedly labor-intensive, but good guidance and template illustrations make even the fanciest methodical and comprehensible. In addition, Stellingwerf offers a history of gingerbread and a recipe credited to Mary Washington, mother of George. Those new to gingerbread construction can start out with the simpler cookies, then work their way up. The experienced will be challenged to create edible baskets, country churches and small gazebos.

Though the book has wonderful pictures, many of the measurements in the drawings are wrong.

N.B. The author's name is Steven Stellingwerf. Rizzoli is the publisher.

I was thinking I didn't have this book and cross-referenced the ISBN on another site (comparing prices ;p) and immediately recognized the author and thus avoided a duplicate purchase.

I rate this book four stars, knowing the measurements are incorrect, for the inspiring projects and depictive photos. I like his finely detailed work and think overall, this a must-have edition to your gingerbread-baking collection.

I am really disappointed that this book is not available. Really would like to purchase it. We have it in the public library, but to do the projects I would like to own it. The best book I have come across on this subject!! Simple and to the point.

Of all the gingerbread books I own this is without a doubt one of the best ( if not THE best). Illustrations are great, recipes are wonderful but most of all it gives so many unusual ideas to help get the creative juices flowing. And for those who may just want to admire these works of art without ever creating any it's fine for that as well. I love my book.......a "keeper". You won't regret purchasing this book.

If you have never made gingerbread before, this is the book for you. The recipes are easy and the step by step pictures walk you through the process of making anything from gingerbread cookies to a variety of gingerbread houses with various themes. I would highly recommend it.
