Tasty Creations on View at Gingerbread House Preview Cocktail Party


Unlike Hansel and Gretel, you won’t have to follow a trail of crumbs through the woods to discover magical gingerbread houses this holiday season. Multiple examples of the 200 year old culinary art form will be on display at the Woman’s Club of St. Michaels during the Gingerbread House Preview Cocktail Party, December 2nd from 5-7 PM.

The Gingerbread House competition is open to all, with no entry fee. There are separate categories and cash prizes for master chefs, non-profits, adults and children. Party goers will get the first peak at the creations while savoring holiday food and drink. Many of the entries can be purchased during a silent auction during the party for festive home decorations or gifts. All proceeds support the 2017 Christmas in St. Michaels beneficiaries.

To enter the Gingerbread House competition, bakers simply bring their creations to the Woman’s Club of St. Michaels on St. Mary’s Square. Registration is between 10 AM and 4 PM on Friday, December 1, or between 9 AM and noon on Saturday, December 2nd. All entries must be made of gingerbread, and all decorations must be edible. No lights or plastic or other wrapping are permitted. Complete rules, including size requirements, are available at www.christmasinstmichaels.org.

Judging will take place on Saturday, December 2nd, with awards to be announced at the Gingerbread House Preview Cocktail Party that evening. Entries will be on public display during Christmas in St. Michaels festivities from December 8-10th.
