We always love the idea of making a gingerbread house, but if we’re being honest, we barely have the space to roll out cookie dough as it is, nevermind cookies that need to be large enough to act as a support system for an actual gingbread house. But nothing’s more fun than going to town on the decorations, a drizzle of icing here, a sprinkle there, a well-placed gumdrop over here. That’s why when we saw that Costco was selling a giant gingerbread cookie decorating kit, we knew we had to share the news.

Costco’s Giant Gingerbread Cookie Kit, spotted by Instagram account CostcoHotFinds, is currently being sold for $8.79. It includes three giant gingerbread cookies, red icing, white icing, and rainbow gumdrops for decorating. The kit is not available on Costco’s website, so you’ll need a Costco membership at the ready for when you go to the store to stock up. You can also call your local Costco ahead of time and ask if they have item number 1602597 in stock.

If you don’t have a Costco membership, there’s still hope. We found several cute gingerbread decorating kits online, and they’re all easier than making an actual gingerbread house from scratch.

The mini gingerbread houses in Wilton’s kit are easy to decroate and assemble. The kit comes with four mini houses, three types of candy decoration, fondant, red and white icing, and an instruction sheet to help you get started.
