Introduction: Harry Potter - the Weasley's Burrow Gingerbread House

There is no denying that I am a proud Harry Potter nerd. Honestly, Ten years or more of my life has been spent being involved in that story whether through the books or the movies so I thought I would make a tribute to the best building in the whole series: The Weasley Family home or more formally “The Burrows”.   I love it because it has an amazing DIY feel to it.  Much like myself, they are on a close budget, they have to make do with things that are not perfect or they make it work somehow. Mrs. Weasley makes her family home knit sweaters for Christmas and they reuse books and clothing,  just like me!  In my mind that house is kept together with magic, duct tape and love.

I am not an excellent cook, but I do like to bake. This gingerbread house, which I actually made a year ago, is the first gingerbread house I have made as an adult. I remember making them as a child with my mother and adding a lot of white icing and gumdrops and loads of sugary bits. However my gingerbread house is not about the candy it's about the gingerbread. Lots and lots of tasty Gingerbread.
This house stands at just about 2'-9" tall and used 4 double batches of gingerbread to create.  I also changed the spice equation on my grandmother's recipe to be heavy on the cinnamon, light on the ginger, with a little added nutmeg and no cloves.

As I mentioned above, I did make this gingerbread house a year ago, and not knowing I would be entering it into this contest or onto instructables, I did not take the kind of photo documentation that the folks here at instructables are accustomed to. I put my thinking cap on and decided to use my other skills to attempt to make up for that.  I did an approximation of my template for this gingerbread house on AutoCAD and to help demonstrate the steps I painted some watercolour renderings. It's a bit of an artistic instructable! Why not!?

This baking endeavour took me 40 hours, a fair bit of money and ingredients as well as a small piece of my sanity! I do a lot of crafting, embroidery and craft swaps and this was not in my regular arsenal of skills so it was a major challenge for me. If want to see what I usually spend my time doing - you are most welcome to peruse my blog at your discretion.



 

Step 1: Supplies

This is what you will need to accomplish this:

To make the model:

  • 3 pieces of 2'-0" x 3'-0" foamcore - colour of your choosing
  • Tape
  • Tinfoil
  • Large sheet or roll of paper
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Images of the orginal house
  • ruler
  • Cutting Mat for paper
  • Exacto Blade       

To make all of the gingerbread:
There are 4 double batches to make this which is a massive amount of ingredients. This list is the final tally of what you will need. I will give you a more specific per batch recipe once you get to that step.

  • 16 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 12 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 16 eggs
  • 8 cups dark molasses ( Some light molasses in there too)
  • 8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 50 cups flour ( of various kinds)
  • 24 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 24 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 8 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 4 teaspoons salt

To make the royal icing:
Again this cumulative for the whole house

  • 18 cups of Icing sugar
  • 12 eggs

To decorate and shape the gingerbread before and after baking:

  • Big cookie sheet
  • Small cookie Sheet
  • parchment paper
  • rolling pin
  • Sharp knife ( paring knife works well)
  • Dull butter knife
  • Icing tips
  • Icing bags ( I just used sandwich bags.. a little cheap i know..)
  • Paint brushes ( Nylon, new and washed with dish soap)
  • Spray food colouring - red
  • Dark Brown and Black food colouring
  • regular Red, Blue and Yellow food colouring
  • 6 cans of canned food ( for propping things up on)
  • 2 Large cinnamon Sticks
  • about 2 cups of Shreddies ( for the roof shingles)
  • Licorice shoelaces
  • yellow and green nerds
  • a brown candy stick





 

Step 2: Sketching and Creating a Foamcore Model of the House

I have a background in theatre, so I am familiar with making models.  I decided to make a model of the gingerbread house out of foam core. Using reference images of the House, the first thing I did was draw out on a large sheet of paper my estimated size of the house, my initial sketch had the finished house at about 5 feet, which was insane and not going to happen,  so I just about halved the size and drew it at the height of  2’9” tall. I then used that sketch to figure out the size of my foam core pieces. 

As I said before I made some templates, a facsimile of what I originally did. These are my approximated pieces. I did this on AutoCAD this week to show people how made this, so if you use this as a template to make your own, please double check and make your own foam core pieces  because I haven’t put these drawings specifically together before, and I am positive there are things that are not perfect.  (Pay attention especially to the angles on the roofs) The scale is about 3/16" = 1'-0", when this is printed on 8-1/2 by 11 paper.

I put together the foam core pieces with tape, checking to see that they all fit well together. Starting at the bottom I worked my way up to the top until I had the all of the pieces made and looking like the original reference.

I then labelled each piece, took the model apart and used each individual piece for my gingerbread template.

Step 3: Making the Gingerbread Dough

As I mentioned before,  I am giving you the recipe for one single batch, so that if you wanted to use it for something smaller you could go right on ahead and do that.

Gingerbread Recipe for one single batch:

  • 2 stick of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup dark molasses
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 1/4 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mixing the Gingerbread Dough

I used a little hand mixer for some of this, but sometimes it got too much for that! So most of the time I just ended  up doing it with my hands, and boy were they sore by the time I was done!

 Mix together the butter until it’s creamy smooth. Put the sugar into that and mix until it gets kind of fluffy and light. Mix in your eggs one at a time, then add Molasses and

Mix the dry ingredients in a separate large bowl– Flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and Salt.  Little bits at a time, add in the dry mixture to the wet, till you get a nice dough.  Wrap that puppy up, and put it in the refrigerator for 1 – 2 hours. Use this time to reflect or perhaps get inspiration and watch a Harry Potter Film.




Step 4: Rolling Out and Making Your Gingerbread Pieces


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and put parchment paper on  2 large cookie sheets. As the pieces are really big for this, you will need large cookie sheets.

Sprinkle a bit of flour on to your dough rolling surface, find two pieces of anything that can be your thickness gauge on your gingerbread. ( I used some leftover foam core) Stick them on either side of your roller, so that you don’t get any thinner than that thickness with your roller, a nice even surface pays off in the end.  Split your dough up and start rolling it out.  Use the foam core pieces from the model to create your gingerbread shapes. I used a very sharp paring knife to do all of my cutting and it worked out really well. 

This is also where I added in some detail on the gingerbread, I took the template off, then I added in wooden slats on to the surface of the gingerbread, I used a dull butter knife to add grooves into the gingerbread which would give it a bit more detail once it’s baked.


 


Step 5: Baking the Gingerbread

At this point your oven should be hot and ready at 350 degrees F.  You can stick your cookie sheets with your gingerbread pieces into the oven.

Bake that until it’s pretty stiff, I put mine in for about 18 minutes. Once you take them out of the oven, take the template that you made the shape from and double check that they are the same. Before the Gingerbread cools is a great time to chop off any weird bits that have happened from baking.  Once it hardens it’s very difficult to change the shape.  Do not lift up off of the tray until cools as this may end in catastrophe.! Occasionally I would use the parchment paper as a sliding surface and take the pieces off of the tray and slide the parchment onto another surface. This I would do with extreme caution.   I let them cool over night especially the larger pieces because I wanted them to be really hard and stiff.  If you don’t want to wait that long just absolutely make sure they have cooled completely.

The two huge pieces ( top sides)  I baked for another 10 minutes on a lower temperature.

Now that you know how I baked each piece of gingerbread you should know how crazy it got.  There are just under 200 pieces to this gingerbread house, so my house became a gingerbread factory, I would roll out two cookie sheets worth of pieces put them in the oven, then start on another two cookie sheets of pieces. I would then swap two cookie sheets out of the oven once they were baked for another two cookie sheets of unbaked that would then head into the oven. Baking this entire gingerbread house took me two and a half days of my oven being on almost the whole time.  The only time I turned my oven off, was when I was mixing more dough. There were pieces of baked gingerbread on every flat surface in my house.

Step 6: Royal Icing Time, Oh Yeah...

I know there is a bit of a debate over making royal icing with raw eggs or not with eggs. But when you are talking about a 3 foot tall gingerbread house you need it to stick together.  What a lot of websites recommend when working with raw eggs is to make sure that you use properly refrigerated, clean, grade A or AA eggs with intact shells and to avoid contact between all of the bits, so the yolk, egg whites and the shell.  It tasted great and no salmonella when we made it, however do note that it is a risk.

Royal Icing:

  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar, plus more as needed
  • 2 egg whites


To make the royal icing: whip confectioners sugar and egg whites together until you get a nice even consistency.  Here is my trick in order to hide my icing. I tint it the same colour as the gingerbread.  I add a brown food colouring to my icing, so that it looks very similar and doesn’t stand out. My technique is also helpful for hiding the icing, I try to put it on as clean as possible, so the mess and the bulk of the icing is on the inside of the piece I am working on.

 

Step 7: Assembly: Make a Base, Put on a Bottom.

Using a large portion of the foamcore I made an organic earthy shape in which I covered in tin foil and taped down to the underside of the shape.

Now we start to build!

The "bottom" pieces which are the foundation for the whole thing are the first pieces to go on.

I then put a load of icing on the bottom edge of the “bottom” section of the house and propped it up with canned items sticking the "bottom" to the base. I put together the four walls and placed a bead of icing down the back of the seam between the two walls.  Once I had my four base walls setting up I left those for a day to TRULY harden. This I feel was crucial. The bottom section was the foundation for another 2 feet of gingerbread, so it had to be solid.



 

Step 8: Putting the Top Section Together

In the mean time while the bottom section was drying I started to put together my “top” section. The Top side pieces were so big that they needed reinforced icing and gingerbread braces on the back of them.  I essentially put this part together like a box and let it dry unattached to the rest of the house. 

Step 9: Roof on the Bottom Section

After the bottom section was dry, I added on the side window extension, I then “Stuccoed” the entire bottom section and the base with icing that had been tinted a light brown. Once that dried I then started to put together the “bottom” roof section.

As this is still part of the foundation I wanted this on really well so I put a gingerbread piece ( let's call it a tab) on the inside of the bottom of the roof section so that when it was on an angle it wouldn’t slide down the wall. It also helps to keep the roof level or square(ish).  I let this dry completely. Then I put icing all along the top of the "bottom" section wall and placed my two side roof pieces on. Having the tabs there held them in place. Then I put icing at the top connecting the two roof pieces.

Then I added a couple gingerbread bracing pieces on the inside of my roof. ( Those are the three tabs on each side in the picture) so that when I put the front and back roof pieces on they had more surface to adhere to and they wouldn't just push inside the house.

I then coated all the seams with copious amounts of icing and let that dry overnight before I put the "top" section on.

Step 10: Top and Bottom Become One!

Once both the bottom and top sections were dry and the first roof was on,  I prepared to put "top" and "bottom"  together. If you can see from the picture, there are cinnamon sticks holding up the front end of the house. The cinnamon sticks go through a hole in the front roof section so that they are touching the base. I wanted to be extra careful in weight distribution as I was very worried the whole thing would fall apart. As it turns out, once I had glued the top section to the bottom section there was so much surface area covered that the weight wasn't an issue at all, barely any weight actually sat on the cinnamon sticks, it just all somehow magically worked out!  Which is great because after spending the amount of time I had to get to that point, I was very worried the whole thing would collapse. Lucky for me, It faired amazingly!

Step 11: Assembly: Window and Porch Extensions

While the top and bottom section were setting, I put together all of the window and roof extensions which protruded from the house. I made each one of these, seperate from the house, allowing them to set before I attached them.  I didn't put the roof sections of the window extenstions on until I put the windows on to the house.   Once these were set, I attached them and put on their roofs.

Step 12: Putting on the Top Section Roofs

This seems pretty easy, but these pieces gave me a bit of hassle. Even though I used my tab technique on these roofs as well, they did not want to stay together at the centre. I ended up gluing them with icing using cans and anything I could find to keep them in place.

Now this is where some people might get mad at me. The whole house isn't actually finished. Turns out that no matter what I did my last two pieces of porch roof just would not stick on 4 measley posts. I tried just about everything and then decided that their porch roof had suffered a casualty in the wind, or maybe one of the Weasley's experimented with some muggle thing and blew it off the house! However I continued on with the rest of the house because I was too into it not to.

Step 13: Decoration: the Sprayed Shreddies Roof

Now that all the main Gingerbread pieces were on I could start to decorate!  I used Shreddies Cereal as my roof Shingles.  I laid out a large piece of Tin Foil then spread out the Shreddies flat along the entire surface of tin foil. I then used Spray Red Food colouring ( I believe it's often used on cupcakes) To dye my shingles red.  I started gluing them on with icing from the bottom and worked my way up making sure to break the bottom of each shingle just a little bit so it looked older and a bit more aged. 

On the corners of the roof, I put a line of shreddies down to hide the seam.

Once they were all on and dry, I used a bit of black and brown icing and a paint brush to paint in shadows and dirt.

Step 14: The Pig Pen and the Laundry Line With Sweaters!

This bit was rather fun.  In the original image of the house, they had a pig pen at the side.  I made a lot of long  thin pieces out of gingerbread that I had used for a lots of things, including tabs on the roofs and porch posts. I turned these on there side to make the pig pen. 

The Sweaters are probably my favourite part of the whole thing. I wanted something on the house that would really reflect the Weasley's DIY creativity, and I loved her knit sweaters, so I decided to make a Laundry line with the entire Weasley Families Christmas sweaters on it. 

They were very easy to make. I just rolled out some really thin gingerbread, and used my paring knife to kind of eyeball a sweater shape. I baked them, then used a fine paint brush and brown food colouring to give them there details.  I used a licorice shoelace for the laundry line and a candy stick for the laundry post.

Step 15: Decoration: Wooden Slats to Ramshacklify and Window Trim

To make the house look more ramshackle I used two different techniques.  I painted the wooden slats  I had made by putting grooves in the gingerbread all different shades of brown, and I added "wooden slats" or pieces of gingerbread that were thin and long. I also painted those in different colours. I put those on the house on different angles and tried to make it look like they were just holding the thing all together.

I also used more of those skinny pieces of flat, long thin gingerbread to put trim around all the rest of the windows. I painted these different colours as well.

Step 16: Finally, I Nerdified It.

I put some wet icing down and then put some nerds candy on it to look like grass and rocks.

That's my entire process! Thanks for reading this far! I hope you all forgive my artistic interpretations of cooking gingerbread!

I'm in grade 11 and I did mine half at home half at an after school club. I assebled it over the last 3 days with the help of my friend (I needed the extra height). I glued mine together with hot sugar instead of icing which made it sturdy and quick to set up but it will be on display within the school for a few months and after that I have plans to hit it with a baseball bat :)

A completely wonderful creation! I too am an avid fan of the HP books and films, though the books are far better than the films, I'm currently reading the series for the 32nd time. I'm a pensioner now so not too many years left to reach 100 reads ??
Back on topic of your instructable, would it be possible for you to convert your measures to grammes etc for those of us that live with metrication. I'd love to make the Burrow but I'm totally stumped with the cup and spoons sizes. They, of course, have exact measurements but as spoons and cups aren't standardised in the UK it's hard to get a correct measurement. Thank you and again, very, very, very well done on your creation. Keith.

Hey hickmott,

That's awesome I would love to see pics when you are done! Good luck! It will take a lot of patience. Watch your batches carefully, and trim right after you get stuff out of the oven, if it has in any way gotten bigger than your piece should be. This took me a good deal of time, as each section of the house really has to set before you add toooo much weight on to the next one, It is ridiculously tall when it is done and you may need to step on a chair to get to decorating the top of it. Have fun!

Awesome thank you! I just had a couple random questions about it. 1. When I print off the template do I need to enlarge it at a ratio of 3/16 inches to 1 full inch? 2. The roof on the top is it made out of prices glued together or one price that had indents in it and lastly 3. The largest prices on the upper half do they have a pattern pushed in before baking? Or was that just how it turned out?

author
mezcraft made it!(author)2015-11-20

Okay question 1- No, it is not 3/16 to one full inch, it is 3/16 to one full foot. This is big. So if you measure this with a scale rule or an architect's ruler ( link to a free printable attached.) then you can figure it out and what to blow it up to. Sorry I don't have one handy or I would do it for ya.

http://www.printablerulers.net/preview/Architect_S...

2 - okay roof on the top - I am looking at the pictures and there are several "roofs" as this is in a couple of sections. If you are talking about how I made them look like there were slats of wood, then yes I indented them before baking with the back of a knife. Step 4 of the instructable briefly touches on that.

3 - largest pieces on the upper half i did push in the details, again check out step 4 and the pictures in that step. I did go over them again just after I got them out of the oven to ensure that that any details that were lost were remphasisd, however be very careful as you could crack the piece, it has to be when it is still kind of hot, before it has cooled down.

hope that helps!

For the icing, that's 12 egg whites, right? I could see someone using the whole egg if they're not accustomed to baking.

Je vous remercie pour vos aimables paroles. S'il s'agit d'une mauvaise traduction, c'est parce que je suis en utilisant "Google Translate" pour vous envoyer une réponse. La "base" dessin est des films, en particulier le dernier film de Harry Potter. Quelques idées ont été simplement imaginé et j'ai été un peu limitée avec ce que je pouvais faire avec "Gingerbread", mais il avait beaucoup de plaisir à faire et je suis si heureux que ça vous a plu.
