Wilton Halloween Cookie House Kit

Wilton is one of my favorite brands when it comes to kits and cake supplies, however; i was somewhat disappointed with this kit.  Either way i was still happy with the finished result!  The kit comes with 2 colors of icing, one black and one orange.  The Wilton Halloween kit comes pre- baked and pre-assembled but still requires allot of work.  There are 7 steps to follow to make your Halloween house.
1. Prepare your gingerbread
2.Prepare your icing
3.Prepare your icing bag.
4. Assemble the house
5. Attach the roof.
6. Let stand to dry
7. Decorate
The kit includes:
  • 10 pre-baked Gingerbread house pieces                                                  
  • 1 ghost icing decoration
  • Purple and Orange mini round candies
  • Jelly Beans
  • Candy corn
  • 2 Decorating tips
  • 2 Decorating Bags
  • Cardboard Base
  • Orange and Black Icing
  • Complete Assembly Directions
Go to  and you can access lots of cool ideas and recipes.  They sell this kit on their site for $16.49.I guess it is easier said than done because it took over 2 hours to complete.  I actually let it stand over night.  I had to carefully cut the pieces to match and that was a tough task.  The pieces did not measure up and it was difficult to keep the roof together.  The key to keeping the house together is all in the icing.  If your icing is not perfect then you will have a hard time getting pieces to stick together.  Overall i am satisfied with the way it turned out but i more than likely will not be purchasing this kit again.  I also used paint to help secure the house and decorate the windows.
