Gingerbread House Kits

Our family wants to include a gingerbread house decorating contest as a part of our Christmas party. I know that you can buy gingerbread house kits with the various pieces already baked and cut, but I don't know where. Does anyone know where these are sold in the Toronto area.

Thank you.

  1. I saw these in Costco the other day, also in another store, can't remember where. If I remember I'll post it.

      my sis bought one at costco, and it comes with various candies, 2 bags of frosting/icing, etc. it was super cute!

    2. I was just going to post a similar question! I am looking for either a premade really, nice gingerbread house or a kit to build one. Looking for something fairly large. Any help would be appreciated.

        Last year I got one from Laura Secord ($20). No complaints from anyone. I'm not sure, however, if they have them this year.

      2. Last year we picked one up at Ikea. If you're looking for multiple kits at a good price, this might not be a bad idea.

        1. Queen of Tarts on Roncesvalles has some. They are fantastic but not cheap. However, I would say they are well worth the price.

          1. At costco

            I bought this last year, it's quite large, we had about 10 kids put it together, and they all got to take some home with them, good stuff (tastes great also).
