Gingerbread Around the World: United Kingdom

Gingerbread Around the World: United Kingdom | 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 Sonya Gray in the United Kingdom. 

Gingerbread has been traditional in England since Medieval times, but only became popular in Elizabethan times. Elizabeth the 1st is credited with the idea of decorating gingerbread when she ordered biscuits to be made in the shape of courtiers. Elaborately decorated gingerbread became synonymous with all things fancy and elegant in England. The gold leaf that was often used to decorate gingerbread cookies led to the expression ‘to take the gilt off of gingerbread.’

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 facebook.com/sugarmommasmelbourne.

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.
