First, you?ll notice that there are four houses, two of which are the same. Included in kit is: One A-Frame House, One Slanted-Roof House and Two Classic Cottages.

As you assemble the houses, it will be helpful to refer to the fully assembled illustration. To separate the pieces for each house, use a paring knife to score the lines and then gently break apart.

Assembling a Mini Gingerbread Village is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought the Gingerbread Mini Village Kit thinking that my two girls could each choose two houses to decorate. In fact, before we opened the kit each girl had identified which ones each would work on. We were sorely disappointed when the internal contents were for a single gingerbread house only and came with 2 of the 3 candy types only. The girls kept a brave face and we trudged on hoping to make the best of things. We made the icing and started to assemble the first two walls. By the third wall, our icing bag busted and so we gave up on the whole project. In past years we had used other brands of gingerbread house kits and did not have any problems. We will not buy Wilton products again.
