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.
