Gingerbread Doodle is an entertaining and engaging app for children and adults alike. Users can make their gingerbread dough either by combining and mixing the ingredients together or by using the "quick recipe" option. They roll, cut, and bake the pieces before combining them into one of seven house options.

Once assembled, the house can be customized with over 50 colors of frosting (color wheel is available), three frosting textures, and six decorating tips in three sizes each. The house can further be customized with over 150 candy and icing decorations, windows, and doors. There are over twenty additional cookies, including people and vehicles, which can be added to the scene.

Children enjoyed the virtual baking activities of the app—cracking eggs, cutting butter, mixing dough. They could build for hours, or even days, and not come close to exhausting their options.
