Wilton Christmas Gingerbread House Decorating & MOPS

I LOVE being a Wilton Mom Ambassador!  I have had several opportunities to really get my creative juices flowing and I have a blast doing it!  Heck, I don’t think that my family really mind the benefits that come from it (i.e. cakes, cupcakes, gingerbread houses, cookies, and more).

Wilton was awesome and recently sent enough Gingerbread House Kits for us to decorate at one of our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) meetings.  All the moms at MOPS were so excited to get their decorating grooves on …. and I must say …. there are some talented moms in this group of women.

I LOVE the Wilton Gingerbread House Kit that is pre-baked and pre-assembled.  I personally prefer the pre-assembled kit, but I know many who love to assemble the house themselves.  For our MOPS meeting, we received the pre-assembled houses so we’d have plenty of time to decorate.

The Wilton Gingerbread House is the easiest-to-use gingerbread kit that Wilton has ever made!  Pre-baked and pre-assembled so the family (or friends) can get right to the fun of decorating, without the time and mess of baking and assembling.

The Wilton Gingerbread House Kit includes assembled house cookies with cardboard base, icing mix, candies, decorating bag and tip, complete instructions and decorating ideas.  The house measures 5.5 x 5.5 x 4.5 in. high.  You can purchase the kit in stores and online, retailing for $16.49. 

We’d like to give a huge thanks to Wilton for making the Gingerbread House Decorating  Meeting possible!  The moms had a blast decorating and left with some great memories and gorgeous Gingerbread Houses!  Thank you Wilton!

I received product from Wilton to host this event at MOPS!  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine!

    My boys have been begging me to make a Gingerbread House, but the thought was always daunting! This looks like a great option that even a lousy chef like me could handle!
