Combine wet ingredients in a large bowl and mix.
Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl. Mix the dry into the wet, about 1 cup at a time, mixing as you pour. Finish mixing with your hands and knead dough until combined completely. Chill for approximately 2 hours or more.
Preheat oven to 375° F. Remove from refrigerator and roll out onto a floured surface, to 1/4” thick.
Use your templates and small paring knife to cut out the shapes from the dough. Follow the templates to know the number of shapes to cut out. (Tip: Use a floured, plastic cutting board to transfer the pieces — like a giant spatula!)
Place parchment paper on all trays. Once all the pieces have been cut from the dough and placed on the trays, bake smaller pieces for 7 minutes and the larger pieces for 10-15. (Tip: It’s much better for the construction if they’re over baked, rather than under baked!)
Remove from oven, then let the trays and gingerbread pieces cool a little. Then slide the whole parchment paper with baked pieces onto a flat surface and let them cool completely.
Make your icing while the pieces are cooling. In a large bowl add the vanilla and egg white. Using a whisk, mix in a 1/2 cup of powdered sugar at a time — only adding the next 1/2 once the first is fully mixed in. Keep adding powdered sugar until mixture is quite thick. (It should not easily drip off the whisk.)
Divide icing into two zip-top bags and place in the refrigerator. Let it chill for at least 20 minutes.
