We need to place our order for the gingerbread houses in October so that they can be baked and shipped in time for our event. Please help us out by signing up early so that we can accommodate everyone who wants to come!
I’d love to participate but I already have plans that day. Can I get a gingerbread house to go?
Yes! Stop by Dengeo’s anytime between 8:15 and 10:45 a.m. You can pick up your pre-paid gingerbread house and frosting pack, choose your candy and decorations, and get it all packed up to go!
Do I have to register in order to come, or can I just come to the event?
Yes, PLEASE, register for the event ASAP! We are placing orders for gingerbread products directly from your order forms and we will not have many extra on hand. PLEASE register, and register early! Thank you!!
Is there a way to sign up online?
Yes! Please click here to register online. Or send your order to firstname.lastname@example.org and your check (made out to "A Better Life for Kids") to Sally Battle, 8510 Trumbull Avenue, Skokie, IL 60076
What type of gingerbread house should I choose?
You can see the dimensions of each gingerbread product on the order form. The mini is adorably diminutive and perfect for a young child to complete. Or, order several minis to create a small village of gingerbread houses at home! A couple of decorated minis would also make fantastic party favors or table decorations, or order several kits for your guests to decorate at your own party. The pirate ship is a unique and fun shape that 1 or 2 people can work on. Some people may choose our largest piece, the traditional house, to decorate individually. Or make a cooperative masterpiece by ordering one that the whole family can decorate together!
Will I have to put the gingerbread house together?
No need to deal with the hassle of putting your gingerbread house together! Your gingerbread piece(s) will arrive pre-assembled. You get to do the fun part - decorate!
An assembled, ready-to-decorate gingerbread house kit sounds like it would make a delightful gift. Can I purchase extra gingerbread houses to give as gifts?
Definitely! If you use a paper form, simply fill out a second order form with your gift order. There is an option to order extra gingerbread to-go on the online order form as well.
How long will it take me to decorate my house?
Obviously, smaller gingerbread products will not take as long to decorate! If you think you’ll want lots of time, please check in at your earliest available time to get the most decorating time. For seating 1, check in between 8:15 and 8:45 a.m.; Decorate until 9:45 a.m. For seating 2, check-in between 9:30 and 9:45 a.m.; Decorate until 11:00 a.m.
I’m looking forward to the contest. What are the contest categories?
We will have two age categories for our contest: 7 and under and 8 and over. The prize categories are: best overall mini, best overall pirate ship, best overall traditional, most creative mini, most creative pirate ship and most creative traditional
I’m signing up to decorate a house at the event. What if my kid gets sick and I can’t attend last minute?
Sorry you can’t make it! Just head over to Dengeo’s and request your gingerbread house to-go instead of decorating at the event.
What comes with my gingerbread house?
You will receive your gingerbread product, a base to put it on, a box to take it home in, a tube of frosting, and many kinds of decorations to choose from!!
Will there be additional products for sale at the event to help support needy children in Ghana?
Yes! There will be opportunities to purchase additional items such as t-shirts and cards. We can accept cash or checks.
I have further questions!
