Wilton introduces giant-gingerbread-house kit

WOODRIDGE, Ill. — Wilton's line of popular gingerbread-house kits is expanding with a version designed for the "upwardly mobile."

Wilton's new giant-gingerbread-house kit measures approximately 8 in. high by 9 in. wide and retails for $39.99. The more modest, starter homes begin at $12.99 for a house that measures approximately 5 in. by 5 in. Wilton also offers a gingerbread tree kit, gingerbread boy cookie kit and gingerpops cookie kit that feature ready-to-decorate, prebaked cookies — icing mix and candies included.

“Decorating a gingerbread house gets the whole family into the holiday spirit,” said Nancy Siler, VP 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.”

Wilton gingerbread kits can be found on Wilton.com and various stores nationwide.
