Decorating and assembling gingerbread houses with friends, family members, clients or colleagues is a great activity to build relationships.  During this fun and interactive workshop, each participant will decorate a large 3D gingerbread house as well as additional themed cookies. The workshop will be kicked off with a quick introduction to Gingerbread House decorating, a demonstration of basic techniques, such as outlining a a cookie with royal icing, flooding, etc. Also more complicated techniques such as the “wet-on’wet” technique.  Then it will be time for each participant to design the “look” of their gingerbread house and to create a masterpiece.  The workshop can also have a competition format if you prefer.  Every participant will get to take home their edible art at the end of the workshop.

See the photo’s attached of previous workshops.  Each participant will receive a “kit” with cookies, which will be decorated (see the photo of the Valentine’s Day-themed Gingerbread House) before the houses are assembled.  Please note that the Gingerbread House design pictured is one of many designs we have available.  The price per person will be adjusted for more complex designs like our Spooky-themed Gingerbreadhouse which has additional features such as a chimney, a porch, etc.

All the cookies in our kits are made from gingerbread dough. If you like, we can leave the ginger out.  We even have a gluten-free option!  The gingerbread houses can be decorated in the theme of your choice, e.g. Festive Season-themed House, a Spooky-themed House, a Candy Land-themed House or a Beach-themed House. Please make contact for more information.

Please note: We have a minimum booking fee of R6000.00 for our Gingerbread House workshops.  For groups consisting of less than 10 people,  the price will be the same.
