Gingerbread for Christmas
Gingerbread houses are a staple in many family Christmas traditions. That’s why you see gingerbread house kits in just about every store during the holiday season. Some stores even put them out as early as October.
If you’re looking for a way to make great family memories and have a sweet treat in the mix, our gingerbread house kits are the way to go.
Gingerbread House Kits
Our gingerbread house kits come complete with the pre-assembled freshly baked house, candy, and freshly made, royal icing. You can get up to six different candy selections, an icing bag for piping decorations, and festive rings for added scenery.
We begin baking our made-from-scratch gingerbread houses in late November when, theoretically, the humidity in Florida is lower. Our gingerbread house dough formula is one we’ve used for more than fifty years. Making our gingerbread is a huge event which includes using almost every member of our baking staff to complete. Each batch is carefully weighed, rolled, cut, and baked before cooling and setting up.
Our gingerbread house process is a four-day event.
After a day of making and baking, our bakers allow the house to set up overnight.
Day 2: Our decorators set up the base and walls using made-from-scratch royal icing
Day 3: Our decorators carefully assemble the roof and use royal icing to secure it to the base and walls.
On day 4, the house is ready to be decorated.
Ordering your Gingerbread House
We strive to keep our quality high, which is why in recent years, we have decided to keep our gingerbread house orders to a minimum. We don’t start taking orders until November 1.
You can order an entire gingerbread house kit which includes the house, candy, and icing. Or, you can opt to have the house by itself. Or, if you have your own candy, you can order the house and icing separately.
Our small house is great for individuals or a smaller household.
Our large house is perfect as a centerpiece. If you have children who like to compete, our large house gives plenty of roof space for each to showcase their creativity.
