Amy Knapp builds one-of-a-kind gingerbread houses in her workshop in the woods. She shares the joy of it all through workshops, her recently published book, and with a vibrant group of followers on her Facebook and Instagram pages.
Thank you for all the questions about my book. My publisher (not @chroniclebooks ) only printed 10 copies (my publisher is also my husband). I can send you a PDF file for $5 if you want. Email me at: GgProductionsInc@mac.com with the subject line: GINGERBREAD BOOK. I’ll send an invoice and after you purchase, I’ll send the PDF.
If you are interested in booking me for a demo this season please message me immediately. Thank you! If you are thinking of next season I’m already booking. I demo a cottage build and leave behind cookie cutters, recipes, a Gingerbread Amy apron and, of course, the cottage we build together. $150. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you @nhchronicle for airing your adorably edited piece featuring me in in my workshop. As a result, I am feeling the heat over advocating for glue gun use! Here is a picture from a magazine published by a very famous crafty person. Odds are, this house was NOT constructed using royal icing, which I still do from time to time, after 20 years of nothing but royal icing. Gingerbread houses are decorations and gifts. None of them taste good in my opinion. When you give a gift, it should hold up just like your love. You can always graduate up to using royal icing. So many people have a terrible experience and never try again. Hence, the glue gun saves the day. I call it drama-free royal icing.
And, many of you ask how you can purchase one of my cottages. The best way is to attend The Gingerbread House Jubilee and place a bid. All the cottages are made by me or someone who visited me in my workshop. Gingerbread Amy and Associates, if you will!
Thank you so much for caring about my little creations. Last year at this time I had about 12 followers. I loved it. And, I love it today. It means a lot to me that you follow me and ask such great questions. Sweet dreams! ~ Amy
Thank you one and all for another amazing Gingerbread House Jubilee. All the houses were made by the beautiful citizens of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire and we raised over $750 for The Lakes Region Humane Society. Or, according to one poster, “The Human Society.” ... See MoreSee Less
