Gingerbread Houses are made at Christmastime in Germany, the US and other countries around the world. Gingerbread Houses are intricately linked to the Grimm fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel. In the story, two children, Hansel and Gretel get lost in the woods. They come upon a house made of gingerbread covered in frosting and candy. Unfortunately, it’s the house of the wicked witch. She befriends the kids, fattens them up and tries to eat them. Fortunately, Hansel and Gretel escape in the end. No one knows for certain if making Gingerbread Houses was inspired by the story of Hansel and Gretel, or the reverse, if Gingerbread Houses were already being made and that inspired the tale. In Germany, there’s a rhyme that’s said about Gingerbread Houses that comes directly from the story of Hansel and Gretel Vacuum formed on high quality LDPE thermal plastic. No mold release needed.

Caring for your molds:
Prolonged exposure to temperatures exceeding approximately 180º F may irreversibly deform the molds. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may induce stress cracking.
LDPE may be susceptible to stress cracking when exposed to ultraviolet light and some chemicals. Wetting agents such as detergents may accelerate stress cracking.
For best results, we recommend hand washing our molds using normal dish washing detergents, avoiding abrasive type scouring pads. LDPE can be susceptible to scratching which may complicate unmolding.
