A Gingerbread House for Easter?

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Easy to make and tastes good too!

Cons:None.

The Bottom Line: This fun family project makes a great centerpiece for your Easter table!


This past holiday season, my family was given a gift of the Wilton Prebaked Gingerbread House Kit and we had a lot of fun building it, and then eating it!

While shopping this spring, I came across the Wilton Bunny Hutch and purchased it right away, although I had never associated gingerbread houses with Easter. The best thing about this Easter version versus the Christmas version is that this one comes fully assembled, whereas with the Christmas house, we had to use icing to "cement" the walls together.

Included in the box is the pre-assembled hutch, two gingerbread bunny ears, two decorating bags and tips, white and lavender icing mix and candy decorations including adorable pink and white bunnies (unfortunately some of ours were broken by time we were ready to use them). The necessary items you will need from your kitchen to make the icing include two mixing bowls, an electric mixer, small spatula or knife and warm water. Additionally you may want to purchase additional decorative candy or dye shredded coconut green to use as grass around the finished product.

After using an electric mixer to make the icing, it is time to decorate. Using the icing as "glue", use a small spatula or plastic knife to put it on the house, and then add the fruit jelly rounds, speckled jelly beans, pink and white mints, and bunnies that are included, or be creative and use your family's favorite candies. We did not use the icing bags and found it easier to use a small spatula and toothpicks to get the icing stay where we wanted it to. My children needed to taste test each of the types of candies before placing them on the house, and then chose to decorate mostly with the ones that they did not want to eat.

The icing can be a bit difficult to work with since it should be the consistency of toothpaste, so an adult helped my children in decorating the Bunny Hutch, although the children had the final say in where each candy would be placed.

If you want to decorate this Bunny Hutch but do not want to have to think of a creative way to do so, just read the instructions. In it are step by step directions for making a "Hippity Hoppity House" which is the one featured on the front of the box, a "Somebunny Special" in which you would attach the cookie ears on top and draw a face on one side of the house, or the "Springtime Suite" which reminds me of a Swiss chalet for some reason.

The Bunny Hutch measures about 6 x 6 x 6 and when completed, makes a great centerpiece or decoration for the Easter holiday. After everybody complimented my children on their beautiful house, we served it for dessert. Very little of it was actually eaten that day, and it stayed fresh for quite some time covered tightly in plastic wrap.

Wilton has always been a name I trusted in the baking field and they have come through again with a fun-filled family project that tastes great too!
