Practice Practice Practice

If you've never used a piping bag with icing before, it can take a few tries to perfect the pressure and icing flow! We suggest trying out a bit on a paper plate or waxed paper to try your hand before you work on the house. Leave your icing bag at room temperature and make sure to wrap the bag/tip tightly to keep it from drying out.  

.....

Plan Ahead

We use royal icing to build our gingerbread houses because it holds like glue! We suggest building the walls and roof and let them dry overnight before adding all of the fun decorations. An extra set of hands comes in handy during construction. 

.....

Looking for Perfection? Use the right tools!

When placing specific sprinkles, it may be helpful to use tweezers to ensure each sprinkle goes exactly where you want it. You can also use a toothpick to move small sprinkles around without causing more damage by using your fingers!

.....

Make it your own

When you order your kit, you can add a Gingerbread Snowflake Cookie Kit or a set of Gingerbread People to make your Gingerbread House come to life. You can also make it extra fun for the kids by adding candies and colored sprinkles of your own. We also sifted powdered sugar on top to create snow! 

.....

But most importantly...HAVE FUN! 

Our sweets are meant to be eaten and enjoyed. This year, as much as ever, we are cherishing our time with the ones we love, doing things that bring us joy. Light a candle, turn on your holiday music, and have fun!

Happy Holidays and Happy Decorating!
