Christmas Dreams Inn Gingerbread House is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from We buy these every year for the grandkids to decorate. They need help making royal icing to stick them together with. After that, they are on their own to decorate. We always buy extra candies and mini marshmallows to go with them. My grandkids are ages 5-7-8-12 & 18. It's become a Christmas tradition for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really love making gingerbread houses. I sometimes like to add several pkgs together and make my own giant creation. I wish Wilton would add more of the mini candies ,royal icing, and more of a larger sturdier card board base. Easiest way to decorate a gingerbread house is to decorate each wall separately before building the house together. Also, the best way to build it together is using a can in the middle and tying a string around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a Wilton Instructor and I used this design as my inspiration for the Gingerbread House demo at the store. Everyone was especially fascinated with the swirled piping on the roof, its a really lovely effect and fun to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Gingerbread House Kit was really easy to make. I did need to make extra royal icing in order to cover the roof and decorate. I had extra candy and used it for a Cookie Christmas Tree. Putting the walls together was tricky at first, but once I secured them with a couple small boxes it was easy to get a solid and straight structure.
