The sweet-savvy artists at Gingerbread Builders set visitors up with the gingerbread, icing, and candy needed to build festive masterpieces at the workshop’s tables or in their own kitchens. Guests acquire the bonbons necessary to configure flying buttresses and solar panels from the colorful wall of candy bins (additional candy ranges from $0.10–$5) before setting to work with the provided bags of icing (extra icing is $2.50 per scoop). Bright red tabletops become construction sites as decorators add saccharine flourishes without the hassle of baking gingerbread walls or worrying about cleanup. Or, patrons can pick up their materials in a take-home kit to channel their inner Frank Lloyd Wright in the comfort of their own life-size gingerbread house.
