Starbucks Gingerbread House: Review

Diana Chan December 6, 2016 product


Starbucks is selling their Gingerbread Cafe Kit in stores for the holiday and it looks so cute, so a few foodies got together to build it. It retails for $29.95 and it’s definitely not cheap at all compared to other gingerbread houses out there. If you are a Starbucks Coffee fan, it’s pretty fun to build you own cafe. Dee was able to get us a nice discount on the kit, so we just had to get together and build it.

Watch the video that Dee/Gastrofork shot as we made the Gingerbread house. It’s pretty funny, but there is some language not suitable for children or work.


The kit comes with:

  • 2 oz Red Gumdrops
  • 8 oz White Icing
  • 1 oz Red, White & Green Candy Beads
  • 0.5 oz Candy Cane Candies
  • 0.5 oz Red Holiday Cup Candies
  • 6 Peppermint Sticks
  • 1 Starbucks Logo Sign Set


Building it wasn’t too difficult, but it was hilarious seeing everyone else try to build it together while drunk.


Once we got all the walls up and the decorating began, we had trouble figuring out what to do with all the candy canes and red cups. The Starbucks logos were pretty flimsy and I thought it would have been better if it’s a harder sugar cookie.


The final product looked pretty decent, we even built a drive through on the side.


The excess red cups and candy canes lined the back of the store because we had no idea what else to do with them


Overall, it was really fun to build for the holidays with friends but I think we were lacking some artistic ability to make it awesome.
