  • You can roll out your dough on a lightly dusted surface; however, if your dough is sticky, it's best to roll it out between two pieces of baking/parchment paper.
  • To prevent any stretching of the dough, cut out your shapes first on baking/parchment paper, remove any leftover pieces and then slide the parchment and the gingerbread cutouts straight onto a baking tray.
  • Try to cut out your cookie shapes in one go, using large and small cutters across the dough.
  • Don't re-roll your dough too many times; otherwise, your baked cookies will be tough.
  • Once baked, ensure that your gingerbread shapes/cookies are fully cooled before decorating.
Please note that perfectly baked gingerbread should be crisp on the outside and tender in the centre.
