How to Build a Gingerbread House?

Building your gingerbread house is easy with Treat Kitchen’s kit. Here’s a quick guide:

  1. Mix the Icing: Combine the provided icing mix with an egg white or your favourite vegan alternative. This icing will act as the glue to hold your gingerbread house together.
  2. Assemble the House: Use the icing to fix the gingerbread pieces in place on top of the base. The pieces are pre-baked and shaped, making assembly a breeze even for little hands -although they will need some adult help to hold it together whilst the icing sets. Don’t forget to add the door and the chimney.
  3. Get Creative: Once your house is standing tall, let your imagination run wild! Create a gorgeous snowy scene perfect for Christmas. This is your chance to create an adorable Christmas display that’s uniquely yours. Some of our wholesale customers like to build one in store to showcase the finished effect.

How to Make Gingerbread House Icing?

The icing is simple to make with Treat Kitchen’s kit. Whisk up an egg white or your vegan alternative to form stiff peaks. Then mix the provided icing powder with the egg white and you are ready to decorate.

How Do You Stick a Gingerbread House Together?

The key to sticking a gingerbread house together is the icing. Apply a generous amount to the edges of the gingerbread pieces and hold them in place until the icing sets. The great news is any mistakes are edible! We recommend decorating the house once its assembled rather than each individual piece.

How Do You Decorate a Gingerbread House?

Decorating your gingerbread house is the most fun part! Once you are happy with the structure of your house use the remaining icing to create a tiled effect on the roof or a brick effect on the walls. You might like to create a snowy icicle effect with icing dripping off the roof.  Use the sprinkles included in the kit to add an extra level of enchantment. Be creative and make it your own festive masterpiece.

What Is a Gingerbread House Competition?

A gingerbread house competition is a festive event where participants build and decorate gingerbread houses, often judged on creativity, design, and craftsmanship. These competitions can be a fun way to showcase your gingerbread skills! You can run one at home or maybe in a workplace, school or social club. May the best decorator win! These events are so much fun and are a great way to create festive memories.

Can You Stick Sweets on a Gingerbread House?

Yes, sweets are perfect for decorating a gingerbread house. The icing acts as glue to hold the candies in place. Get creative with colourful Treat Kitchen sweets to make your house extra special.

When Can You Eat a Gingerbread House?
