We have two small boys (5 & 3) who love decorating gingerbread houses at Christmas. We've tried the standard house and the train you see at other stores. We happened upon the Home Depot House and thought we'd give it a shot. We were quite pleasantly surprised. While still a bit tedious (as all are certain to be due to the nature of the icing), this has been the best by far! The kit comes with two piping bags and 4 decorating tips which made all the difference! The photos and instructions on the back vary slightly from the actual pieces in the box but nothing to complain about. We will certainly look to buy another next year.
Pros: Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, very fresh

No, I do not recommend this product.
The gingerbread tasted rather good, and the icing wasn't too bad. It came with two bags of icing and assorted candies. The gummi man putting up lights was a nice touch. But, the gingerbread pieces were badly cut and not square. This left gaps where two pieces meet of about half an inch in many places. It was impossible in those spots to add enough icing to get the house to be structurally sound. However, my three year old and I did have fun putting it together, since the "Oh no! It's falling" added to the excitement.

No, I do not recommend this product.
This product was terrible :( The frosting was more like dries out diaper paste (in consistency and taste) and impossible to squeeze out. The gingerbread peices kept collapsing. Overall, a horrible product. Don't bother! Home depot should stick to actual building materials and get out of the gingerbread market :)
Cons: Difficult to Clean, Difficult to Use

I bought several gingerbread house for 17 1st graders to put together. I will let you know how it turns out. If nothing else. I'm sure they will have much fun anyway.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Home Depot, don't quit your day job on this one. Icing is barely edible and taste more like glue than icing. Ginger bread pieces did not match instructions but the ginger bread itself taste good. Recommend changing icing recipe.
Cons: icing is gross!!!
