Come and make special Christmas memories by decorating and constructing a gingerbread house together- or leave your kids for 90 minutes (8 years+) while you get in some shopping!

Everything you need is provided including lots of lollies and treats for decorating!

I’ll show you how to decorate best for success and use royal icing to create a sturdy house. You’ll go home with the recipe and house template as well as your completed gingerbread house!

There are 2 options

  • One for all ages
  • One for teens and adults.

With the teens and adults one, you have the option of joining in the morning to bake the gingerbread or just join for the gingerbread house decorating in the afternoon.

There's even a special Christmas Eve workshop suitable for the whole family so why not start a new family tradition?

Each registration is for one gingerbread house so parents must book and pay for 2 spots if they’d like their own gingerbread house (they are small sized houses).

Parents of children 7 and under must stay with their child.

Gluten free gingerbread house are available with pre order but please note they are not prepared in a gluten free kitchen and there will be other edible decorations in the class that may not be gluten free.
