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).

              1. i grabbed one from loblaws at dupont/christie - they've got a house and a train in the bakery section

                1. Dominion has them too - about $12 for the kit. The house is small, but includes lots of icing and candy to decorate with.

                  1. I just bought one at Dominion too -- but it's not a house -- it's a train!!! My nephew will love it!
