Our Allergy free Gingerbread House Kits

Posted by Melanie Hohman on

Now we can build a Gingerbread house like everyone else, and with no stress.  My youngest son Bradley is anaphylactic to eggs, dairy, and nuts.  He's also intolerant of wheat, soy, and many other foods.  A few years ago, one of my customers asked if I could make a Gingerbread House that was allergy free...WOW, I was determined....especially so that my son Braldey could build one as well.  Now we sell our kits every year, and it's a blast!  Our kits ($24) not only comes with delicious gingerbread cookie walls (that you will want to eat!), icing, and lots of fun toys...but it's also FREE of gluten, dairy, eggs, soy and nuts!   Our deluxe kit ($29) includes everything the standard kit has but it comes with gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, nut-free Surf-Sweets candies and almost double the amount of toys.  It's so simple to assemble too.  

Here's the step by step:

Cover the cake board included in your kit with aluminum foil or wax paper.  Take 2 cans from your pantry to use as support for the walls.  Add our icing to all four edges of the rectangular cookie, and lean it up against one can.  Add icing to all five edges of the tall side walls and connect it to both rectangular walls.  Repeat this step for the last wall.  After the icing has hardened, (takes about an hour), remove cans and add the plastic roof, door, and windows with the remaining icing.  Take a look at the pictures I have in the gallery.  If you need any help, just call us.  BE sure to email us a photo of your creation to enter our Gingerbread House Contest.  The winner will receive 6 FREE gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, nut-free cupcakes.  Enjoy!

I'm just wondering- the candies for the house, do they contain artificial dyes? My son is allergic to eggs and peanuts so ultimately I'm just looking for a safe gingerbread house for him but it would be an added benefit if they are naturally colored. He
too has some behavioral issues and we're planning to eliminate dyes to see if he has a sensitivity there as well. I saw your post about gluten being a trigger for your son so perhaps we'll experiment with a GF diet if the dyes aren't the culprit.

Hi Danielle. The candies we use are from Surf Sweets and these are made with tapioca and natural dyes (black carrot, tumeric, and annatto). My son Bradley gets hives from strong concentrationns of artificial dyes...thats why we love these candies. Melanie
