3. Roll out dough onto parchment paper or a baking mat to 1/4" thick. Try to make the dough as even in thickness as possible. Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
4. Preheat oven to 180c. Cut shapes out using gingerbread house templates. Transfer to parchment-covered baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let fully cool before moving.
5. Make the i=Icing — In a stand mixer, beat aquafaba with cream of tartar and salt until foamy. Add all powdered sugar and beat on low speed until thick. Beat in Suncore Foods® Velvet Red Beet Powder & Suncore Foods® Red Beet Powder and beat until thickened. Thin the icing with water to the desired consistency.
6. Assemble — Decorate cookie pieces with royal icing. Let dry completely. Use stiff royal icing to attach the gingerbread house together piece by piece. Have fun baking!
