Gingerbread House Decorating

Sunday, December 16

2PM - 5PM

Using their traditional Swedish recipe, the Hjelm family embarks on an engineering feat each year for the holiday - from the Twin Lights to the Arc de Triumphe.  While we won't tackle anything that complex in this class, we will bring lots of holiday joy as we come together to decorate traditional gingerbread houses and share ideas, techniques, and recipes for creating a lasting holiday tradition that gets the whole family involved.  

We provide everything you need, but bring an apron.
