Gingerbread House time

Every year the kids and I make a gingerbread house. We have fun, I dont obsess, I let them put things where they want, any pattern, etc.

The first year I attempted making it all on my own...disaster...could not even fit it together to resemble a house, some pieces spread more when cooking, it was awful.

Year two I bought one that the pieces were already baked and I just had to put them together, better but still a pain.

This year...I absolutely am in love with Wilton. They baked the house, put it together and put it in the box with icing pack and candy. I just cut the plastic around the box and the kids started in. It was so much easier and fun too!

Here are the kids with their masterpiece.

I would never attempt a homemade gingerbread house myself.

Where did you find the 'kit' for this one? Id like to try it
