    The WiC Chicks (or Chucks) Review Program)
  • A couple years ago, we talked about the great small appliances section at BJ’s Wholesale Club. We had the chance to test out the Babycakes Cupcake maker, and since then, Babycakes has rolled out some more fun baking “assistants” that you can now find at BJ’s Wholesale. In addition to the Babycakes Cupcake Maker, they now have a Deluxe Mini Pie Maker, Waffle Stick Maker, Cake Pop Maker, and a Donut Maker. Priced at under $30, any of these gifts would be perfect for young bakers or fans of mini-desserts.

    In addition to gift ideas, BJ’s Wholesale also has a little something special for gingerbread fans. The kids (or adults) can get into the holiday spirit by decorating their own gingerbread house or gingerbread man kit. BJ’s currently has a Gingerbread House Kit – complete with candy and icing – and a Gingerbread Man Kit, which as 3 giant “men” that need decorating. I love that these kits include everything you might need to decorate.

    Gingerbread House Kit

    Everything you need to make an awesome gingerbread house…in a box.

    For the first time in at least 20 years, I got to build and decorate my own gingerbread house using the BJ’s Wholesale Gingerbread House Kit. The kit includes 4 walls, 2 pieces of roof, a tree, a big bag of icing, and tons of candy for decorating. They also included a handy tray to help get your house standing. I put up the sides of my house, then the roof. Once everything was sturdy, it was time to decorate.

    Gingerbread House Roof

    I iced the roof and topped it with jelly beans (included in the kit.) Then I iced the door and windows, adding a little jelly bean doorknob. Then I used the gummies for decorative hearts. I didn’t even use all the candy (which I’m sure a creative youngster wouldn’t do.) There are also peppermint candies and candy canes for additional decorating.

    Gingerbread House

    It might not win any architectural awards, but I personally think this is one awesome looking house. It looks de-licious. However, to date I have restrained myself and only eaten a few of the jelly beans. I’ll be short to report how the rest of the house tastes.
