Now stick it in the oven for about 20 minutes (see cooking time on pan insert) or 1 hour if using a 9” square pan instead. Let it cook for 10 minutes and flip over. The houses will all pop right out!

Decorate Gingerbread Houses

The kids then got the chance to decorate their individual gingerbread houses. I made up some icing (but you could easily buy a ready made can too) for them to outline and decorate their houses. I also had lots of different kinds of sprinkles, mini red and green M&M’s, licorice, and other assorted candies to decorate their houses. It kept them busy for 45 minutes and was a great way to entertain them for that lull after opening presents & playing with them and dinner. They had so much fun and were so proud of their creation.

Here are some of our gingerbread village houses. The pan has I think 3 different houses. They were so moist and flavorful to eat. The individual houses were a little bigger that what I would think of as an individual serving, but they were so good everyone ate their whole gingerbread house!

Note: They are really good with homemade cream on top!
