Christmas Edible Craft - Wilton Pre-Baked Gingerbread House Kit

Evan was so excited when he saw that Wilton had sent us a Pre-Baked Gingerbread House Kit. He had so much fun decorating the Halloween Gingerbread House. Not only did they send the house, but they also sent a few packs of other goodies so we could put even more on the house.

I was so happy that the house was fully assembled. Evan got so bored while I was putting the Halloween one together and walked out of the room. The assembled kit comes with everything shown below(house, candy, icing mix, bag, and tip).  The icing is really easy to make, just use the mix and some water.

We did the top of the house first.  We put Santa on and made a "chimney" around him.  Evan kept adding things when I wasn't looking, but he had an absolute blast.

My husband was working late when we made this, so I got into decorating and forgot to keep taking pictures.  Here it is almost done.

I added some drops of icing along the edges of the top to make it look like snow...Evan kept going behind me and licking the icing off.

I decorated the front and then let Evan have at it.  He couldn't wait to put the pieces of candy where he wanted.  He wanted the lights to go on the top, but they kept falling over.  It would have been easier if we would have used the gumdrops.

The best part of doing these houses is watching Evan at work.  He has so much fun doing it and having another "project" to do together creates more bonding time.  I personally think he did an awesome job.  Here is our final product - the reindeer fell down.

If you're looking for a fun activity to get your whole family involved, check out the Gingerbread Houses at Wilton!  They are really easy to do and the memories you create are priceless.  While you're there, check out all of Wilton's Christmas products.

This was not a paid post and honest opinions were used.  The opinions are solely my own and may vary from others.  Thank you to Wilton who supplied the product for review.

That's the best gingerbread house I've ever seen. Can you come do one with my kids this year? Our gingerbread house last year did not turn out ANYTHING like yours!

Andrea Hatfield said...

You and your son did a wonderful job! I need to get a kit to do with my boys. Happy Holidays!

Jason said...

How did you find one that was fully assembled? I always end up getting ones I have to put together and getting it tosaty together and stay up for me is a nightmare. Your house looks absolutely beautiful!

My son (Evan's age) and I did one a few weeks ago, and he LOVED IT! It's one of our favorite activities that we've done together, and he was having a blast "making" his house.

traci smith said...

you tell evan he can be my gingerbread house decorator anytime because he did a fantastic job, and i agree the that the bonding time is wonderful at this time, no matter how little or how old the kids are they just naturally open up and i love it

Terra H. said...

That looks like something that kids would enjoy doing to make the holiday special.

VickeC said...

Yours looks so good,ive never made one,if I thought I could do it as good,I would try

Jennifer said...

I've never made one myself. Two of my kids made them in school last year and they had so much fun. They also enjoyed sharing it with their two younger brothers. I'm not planning to make any at home since their school will do it again this year. I agree, it's a fun family project and leaves good memories for everyone.

Angela said...

I would love to make one of these but I am afraid my son would want to eat too much candy!

Alissa said...

This looks so fun. We should look into getting one this weekend to make with our little guy before we head out for two weeks to visit family at the holidays.

Jennifer H said...

Wow! You did a wonderful job!

Some of my favorite memories growing up around Christmas time was making gingerbread houses-I feel like this activity has started to decrease in occurrence-not to mention we didn't use to have kits as this one looks easy and fun.

Kristin said...

That looks like a great kit! I would sure trust the Wilton name to produce a good product. I've never tried their Gingerbread kit before, we'll need to do it this year!

Melanie Dohojda said...

Your house turned out so nice. I love to do those with my 2 boys at Christmas, but they don't turn out quite that well. We will be doing ours next weekend.

ashley said...

Ohh that looks like so much fun. You all did a GREAT job on your Gingerbread house. I think I am going to do this with my kiddies this year. Nice fun project to do with the little ones. Thank you for the idea.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

tamiv said...

Kim said...

I babysit some of my grandchildren and this would of been a fun thing for us to do together. Time is running out so I will put on my list for next year.

mamabunny13 said...

Can you believe I will be 50 in Feb. (shhhhh) and I have never put together a gingerbread house??? Crazy huh?

Melissa said...

Okay, that's it, I have to make a trip to Target anyway so I think I'll pick up a Wilton Gingerbread House while I'm there.

You did a great job! Mine always fall apart!

Terri said...

This is the yummiest gingerbread house from a kit I have ever seen. I want to see if I can find it where I purchase Wilton's products so my granddaughter and I can have fun making it. Thanks!

~dab said...

I love how these kits make it easy to create memorable holiday memories with your kids :) He did an awesome job!

MusicalThought said...

Mine didn't wind up looking nearly that good!! Your little icicles are too cute--I will definitely have to try that next time.

Truly a crafty masterpiece--and since they come baked and ready to assemble, these are so great for those of us who don't have the time (or attention span) to bake all the pieces! :-)
