You’re invited to our 11th annual Gingerbread Festival!
Saturday, December 14
10 am – 3 pm
Tracy Hall, Norwich, Vermont
Children’s activities, Cafe, Gingerbread store, music, storytelling, silent auction, and, of course, Gingerbread Houses!
Join us for a wonderful celebration of the season, and help us continue to support families in the Upper Valley and beyond!
Last year we had over 80 houses up for auction, donated by local businesses, community members, and professional bakers. We’d love to see 100 houses on display this December! Will you help us reach our gingerbread goal? To join in the fun, please submit this House Donation Form to The Family Place. Making a gingerbread house is a great project for a family, preschool class or community group!
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Royal Icing Recipe:
½ Tsp. Salt
½ Tsp. Cream of Tartar
3 Egg Whites
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
Beat salt, cream of tartar, egg whites and ½ cup sugar together. Slowly add ½ cup sugar at a time until all sugar is blended into the mixture. Icing should mix for about 10 minutes total.
Tip: If icing becomes too soft while working with it, refrigerate to firm it up.
