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!

When we make this again, I think I will use some extra candy decoration and maybe add some accents with purple and green icing also. Nice proect for the kids.

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.
