Building Gingerbread Memories

Posted on: December 1, 2021

Gingerbread—a heavenly blend of sweet molasses and spicy ginger!  Is your mouth watering?  Are you picturing the kitchen table with smears of royal icing and laden with colourful candies?  The little (and big) kids smiling with excitement?  It’s the “most wonderful time of the year,” because it’s gingerbread house making time!  Visit Cloverdale Mall to pick up a gingerbread kit or kits for the family decorating party.

Cloverdale always celebrates food and different food traditions.  One of the most fun and visually stunning Christmas food traditions is building a gingerbread house; making it a family activity adds to the fun!  There’s nothing better than playing with your food!  Using your hands to craft your eats, means you’re literally leaving your stamp.

Metro has a vast selection of gingerbread kits ranging from the vibrant Crayola coloured candy version to the Elf on the Shelf mini offering, all the way to the it’s-not-even-gingerbread kit by Oreo. Whichever kit you choose you’ll have a great time crafting the centrepiece of the dessert table.

And to personalize your architectural wonder, slide on over to Bulk ‘N’ Bits to add some sanding sugar, candy canes, and candy-coated chocolates.

Once the kiddos have built and decorated the best gingerbread house ever make sure you snap a pic and tag @cloverdalemall so we can see everyone’s creative and tasty sides!
