Bald kommen die KNUSPERHÄUSER!





Gingerbread House time is special in many communities, including North Kingstown High School. Perhaps next year we should make it a town-wide event, as they did in BELLINGHAM, WA.

Today's ProJo included Chef Martha Sylvestre, a culinary arts teacher at the Cranston Area Career and Technical Center with some of her students. Their structures look like they will turn out to be amazing! They are focusing on real architectural elements in Watch Hill. (The print version has another photo; the article will soon hang on our classroom wall.)

CHECK IT OUT!



Remember, this "Alternate Semester 1 Anchor Assignment, with a focus on Culture" is due in the Media Center first thing NEXT Tuesday, December 14. These structures take a lot of planning, for base, pattern, ingredients, decorations, as well as actual dough (and icing) preparation, structure creating, window inserting (don't forget to do this before you bake!), baking, cooling, assembling, decorating, not to mention determining how to transport your masterpiece to the school.

Take photos. Save your notes and receipts.

Und, viel Spaß, ALLE!

  10. I love all the gingerbread houses. I had a lot of fun making one last year with Maggie. It was actually my first time making one. My family makes homemade cookies each year around Christmas but we have never made a gingerbread house. I wonder what our house is going to look like this year. Last year we tried to model our house after Whoville from the Grinch Who Stole Christmas and it came out pretty good. It tasted pretty good too!
