As you said, you needed a special recipe for the gingerbread dough. I understand why the normal one would not work. but it's not obvious to me what would. I would appreciate if you could share the recipe.

So, i just updated the post to include the dough recipe. I have to say that the perfect dough recipe is yet to be found. I have hear rumors about glykose syrup and rye flour make a strong bond when heated, i will try this later.

Very nice, it held up quite well.

When I saw the initial picture I so wanted there to be a dual extrusion for the icing.
Something like a droop print, a flat single layer of the criss-cross to fall down on the sloped roof.
Alas, probably one hurdle too many for such a boundary pushing hardware setup.

Any detail on this secret gingerbread recipe or the mechanics of the extruder?

It would be truly awesome to have a robot doing the icing. problem though is the fact that the gingerbread needs to be baked.
I will share some blueprints for the extruder as soon as i have time. It looks a lot like the original Ultimaker hotend screwed onto the LDM extruder by WASP.
