Gingerbread House Decorating Workshop

from 55.00


6 PM - 8 PM

Come join us to decorate sweet, whimsical, and edible Gingerbread Houses! Participants will be supplied with all of the pieces of a house, which we will decorate and assemble together using an assortment of botanicals and confections. You will leave with your unique and fully-assembled Gingerbread House, as well as an OWL recipe and instructions so you can continue the tradition. We will also have a few Gingerbread house kits available for sale, as well as some house cookie-cutters.

This workshop is for all ages! If you are an adult who wants to bring along a child, there is a $5 charge for each additional person. (Our space is small, so we will have limited spots available for adults who want to bring two children.) Please note that each ticket provides you with one house to decorate and take home. The price includes mulled cider and a sampling of OWL holiday cookies. We will have wine for sale by the glass.

Decorating Gingerbread houses is a tradition that dates back to 16th-century Germany, but for OWL Baker and co-owner, Maia Surdam, it is a tradition she learned ten years ago from her mother-in-law, Kathy Gilbert, in Madison, Wisconsin. We are delighted that Kathy will be joining us for this event! She will guide us with her Gingerbread house expertise, as well as share her family's long tradition of baking, decorating, and eating these festive treats. We look forward to seeing you there!
