"Decorating a Gingerbread house gets the whole family into the holiday spirit," says Nancy Siler, vice president at Wilton Enterprises.  "Our Wilton kits make it easy because everything is included.  They are a festive at-home holiday centerpiece or a wonderful gift."

Gingerbread houses come in a variety of models that reflect differences in size of house, outdoor finishes and landscaping details.  This year there is the Giant Gingerbread House Kit for the upwardly mobile.  The house measures approximately 8 inches high by 9 inches wide and retails for $39.99.  The more modest, starter homes begin at $12.99 for a house that measures approximately 5 by 5 inches.

There are also options for creative home improvement projects like easy-mix icing for additional construction and decoration and handmade icing decorations that add delightful detail.

Holiday building projects beyond Gingerbread houses include a Gingerbread Tree Kit that results in an 8-inch high tree of pre-baked gingerbread star cookies in graduated sizes from small to large.  Or, the Gingerbread Boy Cookie Kit and Gingerpops Cookie Kit feature pre-baked cookies, ready to decorate – icing mix and candies included.

Find these Gingerbread kits at www.wilton.com or at craft and specialty stores nationwide.
