Gingerbread House Decorating - Product Review
Well, I broke down and bought the Williams-Sonoma Christmas Gingerbread House Kit. No one twisted my arm to do so, I realized minutes after I bought the Halloween Kit that I'd be buying a Christmas Kit if one was available. My friend, Susan Hill, was surprised I'd buy a kit, but as I am lacking the baking gene, pre-made and pre-pared is my modus operandi for most baking, especially elaborate baking projects. As I said about the Halloween Gingerbread Haunted House, for $20, it's a no-brainer for someone like me. Easy to assemble, comes with a stand/tray and candy? Heck yeah I'm gonna be swayed.
The Holiday House was far easier to assemble. It did help that I learned a thing or two from having put together the Haunted House. I had fun working with it; the candy was decorative and colorful; the building tray makes holding the house together a breeze - felt like an Amish house building project - one two three and the walls were up! I thought the Haunted House kit was a bit cooler, as I love Halloween and all things kooky and black and orange! The only thing I added to the Christmas House was more candy and sprinkles. But that's my personal touch.
