The sugar-savvy staff of The Gingerbread Shop furnishes holiday crafters with the oodles of candied accouterments needed to create their own delectable gingerbread domiciles, hosts candy-filled gingerbread-house-building workshops, and constructs premade edible abodes for sweets enthusiasts. Customers may opt to have a customized handmade gingerbread house shipped directly to their homes or to a loved one in all its royal-icing-bound and decorated domesticity. The house can grace your holiday table, be gifted to the acquisitions intern, or serve as a home for errant glazed hams. Each handcrafted house can be customized, allowing meticulous house builders to add a name, date, or Lilliputian real-estate appraiser to each delectable creation. Alternatively, in preparation for each one-hour gingerbread-house workshop, participants settle into the festive shop environs before settling down to embellish houses with a cornucopia of delicious items including red hots, mints, sprinkles, gumdrops, and candy-framed mortgage-payment checks. Royal icing in an array of hues binds walls and roofs together, and punch, cookies, and Christmas music twinkling in the background enhance the nostalgic and festive experience.

Though its sweet shoppe is a new addition, Charlie's has been serving ice cream for over 30 years, long enough to witness both I Love the '80s and its original source material. Try your tongue on one of Charlie's time-honored soft-serve treats in chocolate ($2/medium), vanilla ($2/medium), yogurt ($2.35/medium), or Dole ($2.35/medium) in a cake cone. Charlie's can also add any of 36 flavors, including butterscotch, espresso, cheesecake, mango, and many more into any of its soft-serve flavors. Or opt to sharpen your teeth on two scoops of classically flavored hard-serve in a cake cone ($2.25). Sugar-free options in butter pecan and fudge ripple help keep discerning diets in tact. Ice cream is also skillfully injected into cakes, pies, and cookie sandwiches, bridging the gap between Charlie's old and Charlie's new with a filling more satisfying than caulk. Swing by the sweet shoppe portion of the dessertery to pick up some home-style baked goods, such as cookies, brownies, crème horns, muffins, tarts, apple dumplings, cakes, savory pepperoni rolls, and more. Pie, cake, and other large orders must be placed 24–48 hours in advance.
