Gingerbread House Tips and Tricks?

Aprileats | Dec 3, 201209:35 PM     30

I'm going to attempt to make a gingerbread house from scratch this weekend. I'm planning to use Martha's Molasses-Gingerbread Cookie Dough.

I bought a gingerbread house cookie cutter set so I don't have to make my own template. And I'm planning to make royal icing for the glue.

The plan is to bake the house parts the night before and decorate the next day.

Anyone with experience have any tips for making a gingerbread house from scratch? Any important do's and don'ts?
