Until a year ago, I hadn’t heard the name Wilton before. I had been baking for years and somehow had missed this substantial company.

That was until my then 16 yr old daughter decided she wanted her own baking tools. I know, isn’t that awesome? She makes amazing pie crusts and pies! So, for Christmas last year I got her a whole selection of Wilton baking tools.

For Christmas this year I was sent a Gingerbread House Kit. Oh my, you should’ve seen me cringe!

Me? Make a gingerbread house? I’ve heard that these are extremely hard to make. And finding the time? That would be interesting.

I had the gingerbread made in about an hour from start to finish. I am so, so thankful that Wilton has the shape cutters for the house pieces. I can’t even imagine having to have cut them freehand!The next day I iced the frame together. As my son, Doodle would attest, I “wasted a lot of icing" with my first attempt. I realized that I wasn’t using enough icing so I globbed it on. There was no way this house was going to come apart again!

It took about 20 minutes for the house to be hardened together enough for the boys to decorate it. I allowed them each an end, roof, and side to decorate with the candy assortment. They had so much fun.

In the 19 yrs I’ve had kids, this was our first ever making a gingerbread house. It will be a new tradition now and Wilton truly made it possible. I had no clue how easy their kits make it to create what I’d consider an edible masterpiece. My boys were really proud of their creation and can’t wait to eat it!

I would like to thank Wilton for sending me and my sons the Gingerbread House Making Kit! We had a blast. Make sure to check out Wilton at local stores and all of their holiday baking ideas at their website!

As a side note, the day after the boys created their gingerbread houses I let them start digging in. I have to admit, there’s a lot of satisfaction being able to eat this gingerbread house. It IS edible (in regards to my baking)! I’m so thankful. =)

The lightbulb candy necklace kits would actually be great to put into treat bags at the After School program my son works at.
