It was greatly Appreciated by recipent!

The person I got this gift for is very properly impressed. She has already made a "spooky" house, and I am sure it will be used over and over again, and she has a younger sister to leave it to in the years to come. Thanks for asking.More > < Less

This was easy to put together and a lot of fun to decorate. It was easy to clean off and went through the dishwasher very well. It was a little hard to take apart, and I'm afraid that I damaged some of the parts that hold it together in the taking apart process :-( We plan to use this again at Christmas and feel that we will really be getting our money's worth when we do!!More > < Less

Not right for my family

3/24/2014 by Carol

My family decorates gingerbread houses every Christmas and I purchased one of these to try this Christmas and used 9 other "real" houses. This was the last one picked for two reasons. First it is larger than than our traditional houses which is probably a good thing if people are sharing/decorating a house together, but was a bit daunting for a single decorator used to a smaller house. The second reason it was the last picked is because it is and looks plastic. In order for it to look somewhat like a real gingerbread house, everything needs to be covered in icing.

Please note, one of the plastic tabs that locks the house together, broke the first time we put this together. There are several, so the house stayed together just fine, but if more of them break, it would be an issue.

I wish my family had liked this better. Although I would have needed to find a place to store 10 large boxes, we would not end up throwing the houses out every year.

Candy Cottage - reusable candy house

About Candy Cottage

Building Sweet Memories

It’s no secret that prepackaged gingerbread kits can be a letdown. The gingerbread is like cardboard, and the candy pieces often run out before you finish decorating. Baking gingerbread from scratch is a tastier option, but it’s time consuming and tricky to make fresh-baked walls that won’t collapse.

Kendall Cobb and Rhonda Dunn knew there had to be a better way. They envisioned a reusable house that’s easy to assemble and ready to decorate—all year long. A local craftsman made the first prototypes out of wood, and today the Candy Cottage is made with sturdy, safe plastic by Cottage Products of eastern North Carolina. You can create a heart-themed house for Valentine’s Day, a patriotic abode for the Fourth of July, and a haunted house for Halloween. When you’re done with a display, all you have to do is wash the frosting and decorations off the walls and roof, and you’re ready for your next inventive creation.

The possibilities are endless. You can experiment with birthday or holiday themes, traditional or modern designs, beach cottages or barns. All you need is your imagination and favorite decorative treats to make sweet memories year-round.
