Halloween Gingerbread House Kit

Halloween Gingerbread Haunted House

Gingerbread houses are crafts normally associated with Christmas, not with Halloween. This is only because gingerbread itself is a treat that sees seasonal, not because a gingerbread house in and of itself is a yuletide item. In fact, I think that gingerbread houses can be quite spooky and lend themselves very well to the construction of an edible haunted house. After all – the witch from Hansel and Gretel was pretty darn scary, and despite her edible house, she didn’t only bring those kids inside to give them candy canes and hot chocolate.

Wilton makes a Spooky Gingerbread House Kit that includes all the panels, pre-baked, you need to put together a haunted house.  It’s available at many craft stores for a quick Halloween craft, but it’s far more satisfying to bake you own gingerbread and stack them into a house of your own design and decorating, if you really want to get creative. Michael’s has a nice tutorial on decorating the Ghoulish Green Gables shown above. Personally, I’m going to use this as an opportunity to experiment with black and green frosting – things that don’t ordinarily look too appealing on most cupcakes – and make a little gingerbread skeleton graveyard to put out in front of the house.
