Make a Gingerbread House with Heather Vick

  • Norway House 913 East Franklin Avenue Minneapolis United States (map)

Start a wonderful family tradition that can be enjoyed by young and old. Gingerbread houses have a long history and are an important addition to your decor during the holiday season. We’re going to learn the process from beginning to end and you’ll be able to go home with your own gingerbread house. You can also choose to contribute them to the Gingerbread Wonderland exhibit which will open on November 22nd at Norway House. Gingerbread Wonderland is done In true Norwegian fashion and inspired by the city of Bergen's annual Pepperkakebyen. . . or “Gingerbread City.”

If you have any favorite cookie cutters that you’d like to use for gingerbread house accessories, such as a tree, Santa, reindeer, etc. feel free to bring them. We’ll have dough ready to roll and some suggested patterns for your house. Take home a recipe that can’t be beat and will be enjoyed for generations . . . as it has been in my home.

Note: There will be time for lunch during this class. You can eat at the Kaffe Bar at Norway House or bring your own lunch. This class is appropriate for children with an adult. Also, as you probably know but we need to say it anyway, your finished product from the class will not look exactly like the picture. But we bet it will still be pretty darn good.
