Building a Gingerbread House — An Evening Workshop
In this one-hour class, under the guidance of local gingerbread expert Dawn Staats, you will learn the basics to build and decorate your very own gingerbread house with no-fail dough and icing recipes. Dawn will share the tips and tricks for success developed over many years, like how to make your house hold up in our humid southern climate.
Whether novice or pro, after this class, you’ll be ready to enter your gingerbread creation for display in a window of a downtown retail shop during the holiday season as a part of the Beary Merry Christmas festivities.
Proceeds from the registration fees will be donated to the New Bern Historical Society for prizes in its first annual Gingerbread contest.
Call the New Bern Historical Society at 252.638.8558 to register and pay for the class. Note — the class is full — but call now to be placed on the waitlist!
