Is it going to be for display purposes or will it be eaten?

With competitions, many people start making houses months before. I recall that this one lady spent more than 600 hours creating her gingerbread house.

I would actually like to eat them....was thinking about doing mini ones as gifts. Is it too early to start?

Hmm, I would say, I would go with a maximum of 6 days--that is just me though. Make sure you cover it though so you don't get any dust.

Just how long do you suppose the gingerbread house kits that Wilton puts out every year are made in advance? I would imagine that they are months old and are supposed to be edible.
