Gingerbread Houses at Central Market: Update

Yesterday we went to Central Market in Mill Creek Town Center to experience their gingerbread decorating event. The staff was wonderful and spirited. After purchasing a $14 (plus tax) Wilton gingerbread house kit, we went outside to their covered patio. It was cold so we dressed warmly.

Pictured below, is the undecorated house. My mother in law asked how it compares to the Costco gingerbread house and I refer to the Wilton’s house as a 1 story house and Costco’s house is a 2 story house.

The Wilton’s kit includes:

  • Frosting
  • Piping bag and tip
  • Peppermint sticks
  • Rainbow hard candy
  • Gum drops

After purchasing the gingerbread kit, central Market gave us many other decorating supplies like:

  • rainbow cereal
  • candy canes
  • gummy bunnies and penguins
  • Gummy worms
  • Gum drops
  • Hersey kisses
  • Gummy snowflakes
  • Frosting in a piping bag

Decorating with the frosting piping bag was great practice for fine muscle motor control. After a while, my daughter was tired of pushing the frosting so I used my muscles.

Both the girls had a lot of fun and I recommend it to everyone looking for a fun activity at home or at the store’s event. Happy decorating!!
