This year we entered the Gingerbread House competition at the Downtown Residence Inn/Marriott hotel to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. Kristin and Sue did an absolutely amazing job creating a gingerbread version of Scratch in the summer. There are sunflowers, a candy stone walk, a puppy and even Bob’s Vespa rendered in fondant! But the magic really happens when you look in the back – tiny Ring Dings!, a tray of chocolate chip cookes!, baguettes!, bagels!! There are all the things to make and bake and even airpots and coffee cups, all teeny tiny. It is a work of art and even looking at the pictures makes me giddy. The gingerbread Scratch Baking Co. (and all of the other entrants) are on display in the lobby at 145 Fore St. until December 14 so head on over to check them out…. you can even vote for us if so inclined.
