Gingerbread Around the World - Australia | Wilton Cake Decorating

Wilton works with distributors all over the world. This year, we invited our international distributors to join in our holiday celebrations by decorating a gingerbread house for the holidays! Today, please enjoy this house from Nessa Presta in Australia. You can follow Nessa on Instagram at @sugarmommasmelbourne or on Facebook at

This gingerbread house is actually the first one I have ever made. I’ve wanted to make one for a couple years now but always seemed to run low on time. This kit was great, as it was already pre-baked and all I had to do was assemble it. I was so excited that not only was it a time saver, it was so simple to follow the instructions in the Wilton gingerbread house kit! The meaning behind my gingerbread house is a beachy warm Christmas. Being that I am from Melbourne, Australia, our Christmases are hot rather than cold and icy so I decided to represent what a true Aussie Christmas looks like to me.
