In Norway, there is a concept called Dugnad in which friends and families come together in a social way to help see a community project to completion. We seek to create another access point for families, organizations, and educational groups to start their own gingerbread decorating traditions by gathering a team to donate to create gingerbread house kits that include cookie walls, candy to decorate, and a royal icing recipe to assemble them all!

Participants will go home with an official Gingerbread Wonderland apron, a gingerbread kit to decorate themselves or pass along, and plenty of baking tips and practice to make their own gingerbread structure. Participants will also be recognized for their donation throughout the length of the exhibit.
