Ghostly Guest Gingerbread House is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has become a must for our Halloween. The ease of the prebaked house and convinence of having everything you need in one box. My whole family enjoys putting this together. I especially like having the icing included. It takes alot of icing color to get a true black, but this kit already comes with this color. I use food cans from my pantry to hold up the walls until they dry completely. With the left over black and orange royal icing I used one of Wiltons tips; no. 233 for grass on the cake circle base. I alternated colors which gave the house a great effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's somewhat easy to accomplish.. we made two of these this past Halloween and we made one following the directions and then we did one our own way as a family it was fun!! Thats what we liked most about it that we had fun!! It was my fiancée, my son who is two and myself!!! Its more fun buying some extra things to add to the house such as rubber bugs or miniature candy skeletons.. which I bought at a local dollar store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love that Wilton makes Halloween gingerbread houses! It was easy to make and looked really neat. A good idea that I tried was to put the house on a corner of a sheet cake and use the remaining cake as a cemetary using Wilton tombstone candy molds. It came out great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a great craft to do with kids. I put together 4 of the houses and had my nieces each decorate their own spooky house for Halloween. This was easy. The icing is bright and be leery it stains. I had bright orange counter top for a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids and the neighbors took a whole afternoon and made this. They did a graveyard and landscaped the whole thing with grass and a pumpkin patch. This will be some treasured memories.
